Historical Room
Visitors and residents are encouraged to browse photos, journals, and other historical material in the south end of the library. Created by former teacher and long-time resident Mary Erickson, this room models a one-room school house. Grandchildren also enjoy looking at the glass-encased model of the village as it appeared in the 19th century.

Reference books and historical accounts also are available for checkout at the teacher's desk. They include:
