General Crook House Museum

Opens Tue 10a

“tour the authentically restored home of Gen. George Crook”

The Crook House is open  Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and weekends from 1 to 4 p.m. Enjoy the only metro area museum open on Monday.  The Museum is the authentically restored home of General George Crook.  It was constructed in 1879 and is on the National Register of Historic Places.   General Crook was a Civil War and National Indian Wars hero considered the “greatest Indian fighter in the history of the United States.’’ Fierce in battle, General Crook over time became a defender of Native American rights. Though named as the defendant in the landmark 1879 trial of Standing Bear v. Crook, many believe that General Crook helped arrange the trial for Ponca Chief Standing Bear. Crook twice served as Commander of the Department of the Platte, from 1875 to 1882 and again from 1886 to 1888. The house is an Italianate style, which represented the no-nonsense grandeur of the military frontier.  The furnishings are from the 1880 Victorian period. From early November through the end of December, the museum celebrates Nineteenth Century Holidays. The Crook House Guild, with help from area designers and design students, transforms every room in the house into a captivating glimpse of Christmas past. Collections at this living history museum include decorative arts, costumes, art & crafts and period furnishings.  Classes and a reference collection on the history and appreciation of antiques are available.
