Two Buttes Museum

Discover the stories behind the interesting curiosities this tiny museum and library has to offer. Housed in an historic 1912 bank building, this local history museum highlights a collection of artifacts, specimens, and other unusual items from Dr. Verity, a local doctor who practiced in Two Buttes from 1911-46. In addition to the various artifacts and specimens he collected, he accepted objects from townspeople as "payment" for his assistance. An extensive collection of antique rifles, a two-headed calf, and other objects of interest are on view in the bank's vault. The building also houses the town library and town hall.
