Museum Grounds

The Bates County Historical Society has rescued two area buildings and moved them to the museum grounds. One is the 1901 Nyhart School which is furnished as the one-room schoolhouse that it was. It is open to the public. The other building is the Wilcox School Building which houses artifacts from rural and town life in generations past.

The Nyhart School

Established 1901

The Wilcox School Building has been renovated to house

late 19th and early 20th century artifacts.

            A beautiful setting for any event.  The front lawn of the Museum.
