Prairie Village and Museum
Get In Contact
Prairie Village & Museum features 21 historic buildings and seven exhibition halls arranged around a quaint village square. Touring the museum is like taking a walk through a turn-of-the-century prairie town. Historic buildings include the Penn (ND) Depot, York (ND) Jail, Pleasant Lake (ND) Bank, Silva (ND) Consolidated School and much more.
Take your photo with the replica of Silva native Clifford Thompson, one of the world's tallest men in the gift shop. Soak in the art of local artists in the gallery of Old Main. Then peruse through the museum's expansive collection which includes everything from antique cars and farm machinery, to a real iron lung. In Silva School, visitors will find the history of Pierce County and many of its towns.
Visitors are consistently impressed by the depth and accessibility of the museum's collections, which has earned the museum at five-star rating on Trip Advisor. The site is within walking distance of Rugby's greatest claim to fame, the Geographical Center of North America monument.
