Several blocks northwest of the Cresco Welcome Center visitors will find a Second Empire style home built in 1880 by William Kellow, Jr. The Howard County Historical Society acquired the home in 1969 and has restored the interior. Visitors can enjoy looking at the period furniture, some of which are Kellow family heirlooms. The Society maintains its headquarters in the home, and is a resource center for county histories, photos, and atlases.
