Displays recreate rooms from settlers' homes, vividly demonstrating life as it was, and the different cultural backgrounds of the homesteaders. Numerous exhibits demonstrate the many articles and tools used in building a new life; the treasured items brought thousands of miles to a new home.

Loneliness, the separation from loved ones, is poignantly demonstrated in the two carvings by Ukrainian settler Victor Humeniuk. The figures mutely testify to the sacrifices made by individuals in order to settle this area.

The museum also displays a wealth of agricultural equipment and implements. Through these displays you can trace the development of agriculture from that of personal survival to the backbone of a modern economy.
