Anna Bemis Palmer Museum


category : Museums
Anna Bemis Palmer Museum The Anna Bemis Palmer Museum, considered one
of the finest historical museums in Nebraska, is a
perfect relaxing location where visitors can slip
back in time and lose themselves in the days of
old. Anna Bemis Palmer loved the York
community, providing much of the funding and
many of the historical artifacts of the museum
through her generosity.


The museum's displays chronicle York County and
Nebraska's history, guiding visitors through area
geology, Native American settlements, pioneer days, turn-of-the-century, our nation at war, and local
disasters.



A special attraction at the museum is its "period rooms," displaying the insides of a sod house, including
typical furnishings of the early settler, a complete bedroom and parlor of the 1880s, a pioneer wagon
and an old interior of a bank.



Other local memorabilia is housed at the Historical Building at 2329 Nebraska Avenue, which is also a
source for historical documents where visitors can research their pasts. The historical association hours
are Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:00 am to noon and Sunday, 2:00 to 4:00 pm.


Hours: Museum Hours: Monday through Saturday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm
Address: Seventh and Grant Avenue (in the York Community Center)
