The Dawson County Historical Society is committed to the preservation of the unique history and culture of Dawson County Nebraska. Our mission takes us beyond our museum in Lexington, working with local historical societies, civic groups, and other organizations across Nebraska.

However, preservation is only half the battle as we want to inspire the next generation of Americans. Throughout history, all the great leaders have sought inspiration from the past. Educational efforts in local schools and cooperative ventures ensures that learning extends beyond the school house and the museum grounds.

Take a few minutes to explore our site and learn about the society, the museum, and Dawson County. Plan on dropping by the next time you’re in Lexington and see how preserving the past provides inspiration for the future.

    A big thank you to Crystal, and to Janet at Buffalo for obtaining records about my Miller, Marcks, and Peters ancestors from the Lutheran church there at Buffalo. Thanks to you I have now been able to piece together more of my family history going back to Nebraska, Illinois and northern Germany. Your assistance is greatly appreciated!

      We have a book at the museum that lists all the graves at Evergreen Cemetery and where they are located. If you are unable to come to the museum and go through it you can give me his name and I can try to find it for you.
