The first travelers on the Lincoln Highway Heritage Byway in Iowa would have passed the orchard that gave rise to the Harrison County Historical Village and Welcome Center. Straight out of the 1800s, the complex features an original log cabin, general store, one room school and medical office. In a collection that has grown dramatically, the 1850s log cabin was the first building the museum founder moved to his orchard in 1937. Today, you can sit on a bench to learn about life in pioneer days, teach school in the schoolhouse to discover learning in pioneer days and ride in the doctor’s buggy from the days when doctors make house calls not Zoom calls. The Iowa Products Store offers food, beverage, clothing, crafts, and a wide variety of souvenirs.
