When the original Museum opened, it was to house the collection of hundreds of heirloom dolls belonging to two local sisters Blanche Baldridge and Gladys Keneally. They had intended to donate their collection to the Iowa State Historical Society, but when the community realized that they were about to lose this important local collection, a committee was formed, money was donated by the Mary & Frank Wilder estate, the City of Strawberry Point purchased the land, and the original Museum was constructed. In the 1980’s, the Alderson Addition was added, followed by the Munter-Knight wing in the 1990’s, and now in 2014 we just completed a Make-Over Project that was started this past winter. We tore down walls, moved walls, and added walls. New exhibits include: Local Iowa ARTist's, Creamery, Faith related, little girls room, and toys. Redesigned exhibits throughout the Museum including Military; Music Room; Dr Office; Prairie Kitchen; Rocks, Geodes, and Indian Artifacts are just a few of the many updates you will find. We would like to invite everyone to come and discover our many changes for yourself.
