The Buffalo Head Prairie Historical Park is located on Highway 65 on the south end of Buffalo. This nice park is home to the Dallas County Museum, dedicated to the memory of our ancestors and their way of life, and the Jacobsen Research Library. Both the museum and library are now handicapped accessible. The Eberhart Cabin (built about 1861) and Crescent School (built in 1887) also are located in the park. The library is open on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays from 10:00 to 2:00 or by appointment, except on holidays and when the weather is bad. To visit the park museum or library call Thelma Kurtz at 417-345-8694 to make arrangements.
