Burnt District Museum & Sharp-Hopper Log Cabin

The Cass County Historical Society invites you to stop by and tour the Sharp-Hopper Cabin (open by appointment only) to learn more about the settlement of Cass County in the 1830s. The Burnt District Museum, located inside the Cass County Historical Society office, is also available to tour during operating hours. Special displays are available for viewing around the mezzanine outside of the office. Both areas offer an inside look at life in Cass County during the Civil War and beyond. The Cass County Historical Society also houses the archives dating back to the founding of the county.
