Our Buildings

On May 2, 1974 a potluck dinner was held at the Old Corral in Centennial to discuss becoming a Bicentennial Community and forming a Historical Association. The first meeting of that association was held on June 17, 1974. On September 29, 1974 land on the south side of Highway 130 just east of town was obtained from Emma Sundby Wilson and work began to gather buildings to move to the newly acquired land.

Through the next 30 years, the museum acquired an impressive collection of local buildings:

A “carriage house” was also constructed on the property to house the larger ranching equipment donated to the museum. Other large pieces of equipment are exhibited outside on the grounds.
