Crawford County Historical Society
The large 1934 two-story building at 308 N. Smith Street is imposing, but it all started with one cabinet and three items. Now there are three floors of history, and it overflows with items of historical interest.
On Smith Street in Cuba, Missouri, next to Recklein Auditorium and across from the Recklein Library, a large, rock 1934 building sits back from the street with a green lawn in front. It even looks historical and is open to the public for a visit or for more extended tours and programs. It is the home of the Crawford County Historical Society and has a sign on the front entrance that reads History Museum in case there is any doubt.
If you haven’t visited or taken your children to the museum, you are missing out on a real treasure. To take this step back in time is an enrichment that shouldn’t be missed.
