Burt County Museum

Burt County Museum

The E.C. Houston House is the home of the Burt County Museum. Listed on the National and State Registry of Historic places, this 1904 fourteen room home incorporates Neo-Classical Revival details in its porches, door and window openings, leaded glass windows and cornices. Adding to the beautiful woodwork and grand stature are artifacts that have been gathered from the Burt County area. Among the many relics you will find are an early 1700's painting of the Last Supper, Civil War memorabilia, and a sodbusting plow.

The lower level displays many of the professional tools and farming equipment used in the area long ago. The third floor ballroom allows the visitors a first hand view of the social atmosphere of the early 1900's time period.

We hope you enjoy our work.
