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 our fresh look at history.
