Amazing story of the great fire of 1894 and how it the firestorm could be seen as far south as Iowa. The museum is in the train depot and includes the men's and women's waiting rooms, beanery, freight room and depot agent's apartment. A short video is shown to tell details of the tragic day when so many people lost their lives and how they attempted to leave Hinckley as the fire raged across the land. Many educational items have been collected and donated for this authentic museum which makes it one of the most interesting places to visit. When traveling between through Hinckley it is well worth the stop! (it's closed on Mondays)
