The Henri Museum and Historical Walkway features mementos from the boyhood home of world famous artist Robert Henri, including original art and sketches.
The Historical Walkway includes an original Pony Express station which is furnished as it would have been during the days of the Pony Express, as well as an antique church by the park, a 100-year-old pioneer school house, and the Hendee Hotel.
The heir to the Henri estate, Janet LeClair, from New York City, has become extremely interested in the museum and has donated a number of items. In 1988, Mrs. LeClair donated an original Henri painting to the Museum from her personal collection. It is one of the largest works he ever did, measuring 7 1/2' by 4'. We are also fortunate to have three original sketches by Henri, as well as a number of prints of his paintings.
