Welcome to the Jefferson County Historical Village and Museum


The Museum and the Village, with its buildings and their contents, reflect life in the past.

Among the furnished buildings, one finds log houses of the 19th century, a log church, a log jail, a one-room school, functional blacksmith and print shops, a display of period merchandise in the general store, and a variety of medical equipment in the Medical Building.

A brochure with village map and descriptions of attractions is available at the Welcome Cabin.
