Grinnell Historical Museum
The Grinnell Historical Museum was established in the late-Victorian residence known as the McMurray House, built in 1895, at 1125 Broad Street. Thousands of artifacts, among them an organ, a Duncan Phyfe sofa, J.B. Grinnell’s Wooten desk from 1877, have been arranged throughout the house to recreate an authentic atmosphere of Victorian family living. The Museum houses research materials, photographs, period clothing, rare Victorian hair weaves, memorabilia of the aviator, Billy Robinson and the history of Grinnell aviation, Civil War uniforms, and more. In the Carriage House, several horse-drawn vehicles built by the Spaulding Carriage Factory in Grinnell can be seen.
