Welcome to the De Soto Historical Society Museum

The De Soto Historical Society Museum occupies two floors of the De Soto Community Center located at 400 Boyd Street.  The entrance to the museum is located in the rear of the building.  We currently have displays on the first floor in three separate rooms.  We have completed placing the displays on the second floor.

The museum is stocked with area photographs, news articles, artifacts, and more thanks to donations.  Anyone interested in donating a De Soto related item can come to the museum or e-mail us at
