The Meeker County Museum at the G.A.R. Hall can be thought of as two museums in one, under the operation of the Meeker County Historical Society. Constructed in 1885, the Frank Daggett Post #35 memorial hall was constructed by Civil War veterans as a place to gather, remember the war, and honor their comrades. The Hall remains much as it was over 100 years ago, in additional to a number of Civil War artifacts.
The second part of the building is a two-story, 1960s addition. The exhibits here highlight the local history of Meeker County, including pioneers, Dakota artifacts, military items and much more. The museum is open year round. Special group tours are available and we host a number of special programs and activities throughout the year.
Your donation today will ensure the continued sharing and preserving of
local and Civil War history. Thank you!
