Come and step into another time. The Benson Museum of Local History
was established in 1987 to collect, preserve, and display items of historical
significance related to the Benson area. The museum, which was originally
located in the Benson Municipal Building, is now located on Main Street.
Visitors will see exhibits on a variety of subjects including Benson’s
agricultural heritage, our founding fathers, country doctors plus many
more. So come visit us. Experience life from our early days, and learn
about how Benson’s past has made it the great community it is today.
