Phelps County Historical Society

Supporting the Nebraska Prairie Museum

The Phelps County Historical Society Board of Directors would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation to our members, volunteers, individuals, families, businesses and staff for the support and dedication to the Nebraska Prairie Museum.

In 1966, a group of individuals organized to provide a repository for artifacts and memorabilia of Phelps County and the surrounding area. The Phelps County Historical Society continues to strive to fulfill that mission

In order to help the Nebraska Prairie Museum continue to develop and grow, your financial support is appreciated. Please consider becoming a member of the museum and/or giving a tax-deductible donation through the Phelps County Community Foundation. Visit their web site at to make a gift online.

Thank you for your continued support.
