Junction City Historical Society

The Dr. Norman L. Lee House Museum is the only structure in Junction City listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Dr. Lee was Junction City’s first resident doctor, having pulled the back portion of this house by horses from Lancaster when Junction City was chartered in 1872. He immediately began building the two-story section to accommodate his growing family, as well as his medical practice. For a time, the front parlor served as a medical office and there were “laying in” rooms upstairs. Later on Doctors Love, Allumbaugh and Parrot saw patients in this building.

Junction City Historical Society bought the house and restored the front porch, the balcony and floors, and opened it as a museum in time for Junction City’s Centennial celebration in 1972. This historic home now serves as a community museum with each room furnished showing period furniture items and artifacts from Junction City’s past. Our most recent exhibit about Junction City’s railroad history has been installed upstairs.
