The Riley County Historical Society collects, preserves, and presents the history of Riley County through its collection of Riley County related objects and its archives. The collection was created for the benefit of the Riley Countians in 1914. This online photo gallery provides a brief glimpse into the photographic collection.
The Riley County Historical Society's collection illustrates the history of the county through a wide variety of objects and documents including over 7,000 negatives and photographic images.
We are very grateful to the donors who have made this collection possible. We are always pleased to consider donations of objects and archives that will help us tell Riley County's story. For more information or to donate an item, please contact us.
We also welcome research into the Society's collection.
