The Otoe County Museum of Memories in Syracuse consists of three buildings at 366 Popular Street. A variety of historical attractions and exhibitions are available at the museum. The main building is the former First Lutheran Church, which was dedicated in 1881. The church, built for $1,500, was a daughter church of First Lutheran Church, North Branch, near Avoca. The church has been divided into five display rooms: an old-time butcher shop, a carriage room with a sleigh, a country store made from cottonwood logs, a loom room which also includes a section of the 1912 Syracuse telephone switchboard, and a doctor’s office. The parsonage next door features vintage furnishing displays and exhibits on Otoe County military history and businesses. A small building next to the parsonage now houses a display of wildlife specimens with interactive exhibits related to nature science.
