The Freedom Museum


category : Museums
The Freedom Museum The Freedom Museum is one of the most popular places of interest in this area. The museum houses one of the most extensive collections of late 1800s and early 1900s house-wares and memorabilia. Antique farm machinery and a large barbed wire display are also on display. Artifacts from the Burnham Dig, an archaeological site located northwest of Freedom, can also be seen. This exhibit not only showcases extremely rare fossils discovered at the site and their potential for changing history, but also depicts the astonishing changes in the local environment over the course of time. Hundreds of people from throughout the U.S. and several foreign countries are registered here, and most acclaim the museum to be quite interesting and unique.

The museum became a reality in 1976 after property was donated by the late Simpson Walker, Sr. Long hours of volunteer work have since been donated by dedicated community members. In 1982, a gift from the Powers family funded the addition of an east wing to the original building. A machine shed for exhibiting large antique items was added a year later.
