Sibley County Historical Society and Museum [MN]

The Society's Museum is housed in the 1885 Poehler home. In the back yard of the house stands a log cabin built by another German immigrant, Christian Didra, about 1858. This log cabin is a dramatic reminder of the harsh living conditions under which the earliest of the Sibley County pioneers existed.

The society offers occasional recreational and education events; the museum offers exhibits.
