The Coffey County Historical Society and Museum exhibits the history of Coffey County and the communities, businesses, and people that accompany it. On our grounds are the museum, the Rural Dale (one room) school house which was built in 1896, and the Bethel Methodist Episcopal Church which was built in July of 1895. Both have been restored and are in very good condition. We also offer a genealogy library and accept genealogical requests.

Museum admission is free, but donations are appreciated.

Please call ahead for a guided tour. Groups or individuals wanting to view the Museum without a guide are welcome at all times during normal business hours. To schedule a guided tour, please contact the Museum.
