Every Artifact Has a Story

Virtual Exhibit from the NLCHM Collection

The title says it all – Every Artifact Has a Story! This virtual exhibit focuses on artifacts based on the stories that they possess, rather than their aesthetic value alone. Many of these artifacts come from deep in the museum’s collection and others are currently on display. Some of these artifacts have had a long journey before being preserved here at the North Lincoln County Historical Museum, while others tell the stories of Native American and Pioneer life right here in North Lincoln County. Many of these artifacts have been cozy in tissue paper and acid-free boxes, patiently waiting for their turn to shine and to reveal their intriguing stories.
