Main Street

Stroll along the boardwalk and take in displays of an early general store, doctor’s office, pharmacy, blacksmith shop and Albert Halverson‘s living room from his home near Sioux Rapids, inhabited from 1891 to 1944. The Pioneer Main Street also includes the former interior of the First National Bank in Rembrandt, which was famously robbed by the Bonnie and Clyde Gang in 1934.

Other exhibits are dedicated to Buena Vista County’s first permanent settler - Abner Bell, many interesting old items from homes and businesses, the annual ice harvest (which last until after WWII), local musicians and merchants and members of the US Armed Forces engaged in a variety of conflicts.

The exhibits provide a window into many interesting aspects of life in Storm Lake at around the turn of the 20th century.
