Riley County Historical Museum

As a public health and safety measure under the direction of the Local Health Officer, the Board of County Commissioners have closed county offices to the public until Sunday, April 19, 2020. The Wolf House Museum (630 Fremont) will also be closed through April 19, 2020.

The Riley County Historical Society is working with Heritage Builders on repairs to the Pioneer Log Cabin. We hope to re-open the Log Cabin this summer.
