Plains Historical Museum To learn more about Kimball's history, visit the Plains Historical Museum. The museum is housed in the town's old Fraternal Hall. Built in 1904, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the building is a museum itself. In 1904, members of the Knights of Pythias, Woodmen, and Royal Neighbors met to discuss the possibility of erecting a lodge hall. The cornerstone for the two-story frame building was laid August 4, 1904, and the new Fraternal Hall was dedicated in March 1905. The hall represents a simplified version of the Neo-Classical Revival style.

Displays in the museum include Indian artifacts, antique furniture, and tools and clothing dating back 100 years. Prized possessions include an autograph book dated in the 1840s and an "Around the World" doll collection.
