Overview

The Murray County Historical Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to the collection, preservation, interpretation, and dissemination of the county's history. The society was established in 1934 and operates the Murray County Historical Museum in cooperation with the Murray County Board of Commissioners. The Wornson Log Cabin, Koch Cabin at Lake Shetek State Park, the Country School No. 1 at End-O-Line Railroad Park, and the Dinehart-Holt House were restored by the society. The Historical Society is an important but often overlooked part of the county. It collects and maintains the material history of the county for the benefit of its residents and visitors. Vital records and historical objects that define the nature of Murray County can be found in the museums collections. The Murray County Historical Society is funded by support from its members, donations from museum visitors, contributions from the city of Slayton and local groups, and the support of the Murray County

I have visted the museum and the Holt house. I usually do this at christmas time. Our Dorcas Society has decorated a tree in the past. We won first place once. It is always fun to see how it was in the past.
