Gage County Historical Society and Museum

The mission of the Gage County Historical Society is to preserve, enhance, and showcase the unique history of Gage County by connecting our stories to develop appreciation throughout the wider community. 

Participate in Community Wide Survey!

The Society is sending out a community wide survey over the next two months. This survey is to see how we are engaging with the people of this county. Questions are over types of events you would like to see, type of hours you would like us to be open, and what we can do to be a more inviting facility. We would like everyone who can participate to do so. This survey will begin now and go through to April 1, 2024. To participate you can go click on the link below. 




Filley Stone Barn Chocolate Bar Fundraiser 

Lulubee Artisanal Chocolates out of Lincoln, Nebraska has custom made for us milk and dark chocolate bars with a picture of the Filley Stone Barn. These are credit card size bars. Right now we are taking preorders for individual bars and cases of 25. Orders for the chocolate bars have to be back to the museum by April 12th. Customers who pre-order chocolate bars will be called to pick them up once they come in. We will not be able to mail them. All proceeds go to the Cottage Hill Outdoor Classroom at the Filley Stone Barn. If you have any other questions about this fundraiser, please call the museum at 402-228-1679. Please make checks out to Gage County Historical Society and Museum and mail to the address below.

Filley Stone Barn Preservation Project 

We have the window wells, the barn door, and the mason work completed! Thanks to our generous donors! We just have a few more mason projects on the barn to complete because the first time around they found a few more issues that need to be taken care. We also are raising money for our Cottage Hill Farm Outdoor Classroom which will be located on site. This outdoor classroom will be used for summer camps, Pioneer days, and other activities put on by the society. We are raising $26,000 for the outdoor classroom and an additional $2500 for the mason work. If you would like to donate to this project, please give the museum a call.
