Hoisington Historical Society was founded in 1996 but was not active until the recent donation of a house back in December 1999. The building was built in 1905 and has undergone extensive remodeling. Currently, this 6 room, 1 bathroom structure is the home to the Hoisington Historical Museum. On display is a variety of memorabilia showcasing our proud history; from the birth of Hoisington, our many growing pains, our greatest achievements, up to its present day. Highlighting a vibrant history for many of us that call Hoisington home.
The Hoisington Historical Museum is located at 120 East 2nd, and is free of charge. The Hoisington Historical Society’s goal is to not only to display the history but to bring it to life in our minds and hearts, providing you with an understanding of our rich heritage and to be proud of our small town and community.
