The Scott County Historical Society is charged with preserving and interpreting the history of Scott County. This is accomplished through the administration of the Stans Museum and two historic sites. The Stans Museum houses the Scott County Historical Society Research Center and exhibits. Collections include books, photographs, artifacts, and newspapers and other historic material related to the history of Scott County. Each year many tour groups and students visit the museum, or meet the staff and volunteers at our in-school programs or at events around the county.
