The Nash Home & Museum opened in 1962. Built in 1878 of Midwestern prairie-type architecture, square, w/ long porches and high ceilings, it was the home of the Chester Nash family. Chester's daughter, Ruby Nash, taught school for 50 years from 1891-1941. Nash School, now Nash Recreation Center, was named after her. The Nash Home / Museum is furnished with artifacts from all over Ogle County and from the earliest settlers to present day. In addition to the Nash Home, we have an annex building which contains more displays as well as our research and office area. The Museum is open for tours on Sunday afternoons - late April through September, with occasional Saturdays. Genealogical research from 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm on Wed. We also offer tours for groups and by appt. Society members can be found at the museum on Thursday mornings year round from 9 am to NOON. We look forward to your visit!
