Lyon County Historical Museum

The Lyon County Historical Museum is located at 356 West Main Street in downtown Marshall.

Explore Lyon County's rich and varied history dates back to its earliest known inhabitants, the Sisseton branch of the Dakota Sioux nation.

Lyon County was organized in 1870 in Lynd. Two years later a land grant to the railroad changed the county seat to Marshall. The Historical Society showcases the history of the entire county, from its land grant beginning to today.

Eye-catching exhibits enhance the visitors understanding of the importance of rural and village communities in the county's development.

The center piece of the museum's collection is the Schwan's Dairy Lunch Counter, a real 1950's ice cream and soda fountain counter. The Prairie Diorama, Prairie Schooner and the 1872 log cabin show how settlers traveled to the prairie and erected their first homes. The cabin was dismantled and then reassembled inside the museum building. Another display showcases and preserves the pop-culture of the 1960s.

The Museum is open February through December each year.
