Gibbs Museum of Pioneer and Dakota Life




   Originally the home of Herman and Jane Gibbs, the farm house, built in 1854, was the first preservation project of the Ramsey County Historical Society. The house was eventually fully restored and grew into the Gibbs Museum of Pioneer and Dakota life. Visitors to the Museum can tour the farm house as well as the Dakota style tipi and replica bark lodge that can also be found on the property. 
     The Museum also includes the two Gibbs family barns, one which was designed by prominent architect Edwin Lundie, as well as the Stoen School which was built in the 1880's and moved from it's original location in Chippewa County in 1966. The School hows is fully furnished, including a working school bell.
