A small museum dedicated to the exhibition and preservation of the history of Slater, Iowa and the surrounding area. Included are displays on farming, local businesses (such as the office of a dentist in the early 1900s!) and genealogy resources.
One of the more important exhibits is a miniature of Slater’s west side in the 1940s and 1950s, with the railroad junction, creamery, ball field, and hobo jungle. Human figures a less than an inch high. There are also special exhibits during the year. The last one was on life on the family farm during the 30s and 40s. In addition, the Hall of Heroes contains the photos of over 200 men and women from Slater who served in the military from the Civil War onward.
Hours are 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM Thursdays and by appointment. Sunday hours are also being planned.
