The Grenfell “Adare” Museum, located on a spacious lawn surrounded by trees and flowers, is a stately three storey Queen Anne revival style house built in 1904 by a local prominent businessman Mr. Edward Fitz-Gerald for his family.
The exterior features large windows, a huge turret, an eyebrow window, and a vine covered arbor; the interior features a curved oak staircase, three fireplaces, and bay windows; two staircases to the 2nd floor, and a narrow staircase to the attic which contains a large metal trough used to hold water for the plumbing.
The museum was officially opened in July 1973 after being restored and fully furnished as per that era. It was designated a Municipal Heritage House in 1981.
The museum has a wide collection of pioneer artifacts including a rope bed, a 1890 square grand piano, military display, a large topographical homestead map, a 1949 Fargo fire truck, and a B A gas station mural and pump; and histories of the country schools and churches of the area.
