There are three county museums preserving much of the past. You'll see the rich history of this area, from our pre-Bagnell Dam past, back to a time before the white man had settled here.
The Camden County Museum in Linn creek is a small collection housed in the abandoned Linn Creek School. It is located on V Road just to the north off of U.S. Hwy. 54 in Linn Creek. The town of Linn Creek was moved because of the Dam construction.
The Miller County Museum is in Tuscumbia. It is located in the old Anchor Milling building, located on West Hwy. 52. The building and the museum serve as a monument for the proud culture of the Miller County people.
The Morgan County Historical Museum is located in the Martin Hotel on 120 N. Monroe in Versailles. The hotel has been a landmark for more than 100 years. Twenty-eight of the rooms are decorated in different themes. Some of the room themes include a chapel room, weaving room, barber shop, replica of an old school room, and the Miss Lucy room. Miss Lucy was the last surviving member of the Martin Thomas family. In the lobby remains the eight-day Seth Thomas wall clock and the keyboard, including original room keys.
Also visit the newly opened Willmore Lodge #1 Willmore Lane, Lake Ozark, Missouri. The Lodge has recently been entered into the National Historical Register and contains a museum with much information about the impact created by the construction of Bagnell Dam.
