Fillmore County Museum 

OPEN By Appointment Only

The Fillmore County Museum, located at 600 6th Ave., was originally the Fairmont Creamery Office. Dr. Ashby purchased the building in 1907 and used the space as a doctor's office until the 1960's. In the early 1980's, the building and some original contents were donated by the Ashby family to the Fillmore County Historical Society for a museum. Since opening in the summer of 1986, an average of 1,000 visitors a year have toured the museum. A large medical display, World War II articles from the Fairmont AirBase and several old wedding dresses are some of the special features. In the old drug store building you can see an iron collection, 2,500 pitchers, country school, soda fountain and much more. The museum is open by appointment.
