The Nash Home and Museum opened in 1962. It was the home of the Chester Nash family and was built in 1878 of Midwestern prairie-type architecture; square, with long porches and high ceilings.
Chester's daughter, Miss Ruby Nash, taught school for 50 years from 1891 to 1941. Nash School, now Nash Recreation Center, was named after her.

The Nash Home / Museum is furnished with artifacts from all over Ogle County and from the earliest settlers to present day. In addition to the Nash Home we have an annex building which contains more displays as well as our research and office area.

The Museum is open for tours on Sunday afternoons from late April through September, with occasional Saturday hours. We are also open by appointment. Society members can be found at the museum on Thursday mornings year round from 9:00 AM to NOON.
