Platte County Museum

2916 16th Street
Columbus, NE 68602


About Us :

Many new improvements, many historical items, have been added to the Platte County Museum in the past few years. We think it is now a major historical attraction (for example, the 1857 Gottschalk log cabin is the oldest in Nebraska). New projects are planned, for we hope to make it even better! Have you seen the large old-time wooden windmill that was recently erected? But these and other projects in the future can be completed only with your help. Together, we can preserve the history of Platte County's growth! Consider volunteering or make a contribution!
