This museum was home to Dr. Norman Lee, one of Junction City's first doctors. It was originally located in Lancaster about 2 miles north of here, and was moved to its present location in 1872 using logs and a team of horses!
.It's now is filled with photos, furniture, tools, and clothing from Junction City's past.

Mary Pitney (1891-1995) was a school teacher, published poet, painter, world traveler, and humanitarian. Born and raised in this house, she lived the later years of her life here. Upon her death at age 104, she bequeathed her home to the Junction City Historical Society. It is furnished it with Mary's original furniture. In addition, Junction City's first jail was moved next to it in 1998. If you want to learn more about the interesting history of Junction City, as well as see some photos from our past, this is the place!
