LOCATION HISTORY

 

The Ray County Museum building was built as a county home (poor farm) in 1910 at a cost of $19,491, which included wiring, plumbing, & heating. Built in the shape of a “Y” with 14,424 square feet of floor space, the building has three floors with 54 rooms, eight masonry walls which are 14″ thick up to the roof, and fire doors at the wing entrances. The side porches are approximately 200 square feet each. The building rectangle would cover 1/3 of an acre. It was used as a Poor Farm until the 1960s and was used as a nursing home until the early 1970s. In the 1970s, the building became the Ray County Museum.
