Hedlund House Museum

Lincoln County’s Hedlund House Museum Welcomes Visitors

The Hedlund House Museum, located at 617 3rd Ave. in Hugo, is open for business through Labor Day.

The house was built in 1877 by William A. Hill, who was a Civil War veteran from New Hampshire. Hill was the first storekeeper in Hugo and filed his homestead claim in 1875. He also platted the future town of Hugo.

Regular hours for operation are Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. 
Three new displays grace the exhibit this season: Lincoln County’s Cemeteries, Lincoln County Baseball and Lincoln County’s Schools.

There are other great items on display as well. Admission is free. Anyone interested in a group tour or a visit on a weekday, may call Terry Blevins at 740-0106 to make an appointment.
