New Agriculture Museum To Open On Osceola County Fairgrounds

Sibley, Iowa — A new museum will open on the Osceola County Fairgrounds next year.

Beth Thole, who’s been working on the project, says the McCallum Museum in Sibley, which holds artifacts from the pioneer and Civil War era, was built in 1957 and has run out of space.

Thole, who is a member of the McCallum Museum Baord, says some changes have already been made to the 99-year-old Commercial Building on the fairgrounds.

The Osceola County Fair wrapped up this past weekend and Thole says they’ll start moving artifacts into the building soon. The goal is to have a grand opening of the museum during the 2024 Osceola County Fair.
