The Museum is the authentically restored home of Civil War and American Frontier Wars veteran, General George Crook, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It was constructed in 1879 while General Crook served as the Commander of the Department of the Platte. General Crook is also known for his supporting role in the landmark 1879 trial of Standing Bear v. Crook.
Restoration of the House began in the 1970s and was accomplished by a devoted group of volunteers. All furnishings, while not original to the House, are antiques from the 1880s Victorian period. From early November through mid-January, the museum celebrates the holidays complete with decorations and refreshments. The Crook House Guild transforms every room in the house into an extravaganza of Christmas spirit.
Collections at this living history museum include decorative arts, costumes, arts and crafts, and period furnishings.
