Yes, in 1962 The Old Mill Museum in Lindsborg was designated the county museum. Other museums have been established in the larger cities in the county: Inman, Moundridge, Marquette, Galva and McPherson featuring the cities historical aspect. The county museum has taken a back seat to these mentioned as county history do not seem that important as it once was. They do have a collection of history of the over one hundred one-room schools that were in McPherson County at one time.
