Poweshiek County MuseumContact:  
200 S. Third Street
Montezuma, IA 50171

In 2010, the Poweshiek County Historical Society purchased the 1913 County Jail from Poweshiek County to restore and repurpose the historic building as the Poweshiek County Museum. The old jail is the third oldest building of its kind in the state of Iowa. The Historical Society took posession of the building for the initial cost of $1 and began the work needed to prepare the facility to accomodate the organization’s staggering gathering of artifacts and special collections. The museum opened for a sneak preview in the summer of 2012, and again later in the year for the traveling Civil War Exhibition sponsored in part by the State Historical Society of Iowa. Exterior and interior work continues with hopes of expanding the museum to regular hours in the near future. 201 South Third Street, Montezuma, IA 50171.
