In 1973 the Emmons County Historical Society was established to gather, preserve, and exhibit items related to the county history. The Emmons County Museum in Linton houses the collection. The museum is comprised of 4 buildings, with the main musuem housed in the old St. Matthew's Episcopal Church and in the former rectory. The musuem includes exhibits on early peoples and early immigrants, life, religion, music, and medicine in Emmons County, and an extensive military memorabilia display. The infamous safe from the early days of Emmons County also has a home in the musuem.
The museum is open Memorial Day through Labor Day, Fridays and Sundays from 2-4 and by appointment. Contact 701-254-4399 or 701-254-5462 to schedule a tour.
