  • Short your with a video about the fire. Several rooms outfitted with old stuff to simulate the olden days. Pretty nifty. Small fee.
  • We enjoyed our visit to this museum, learning about the great Hinkley fire.
  • Very informative. I cannot imagine a fire this large. Definitely worth the stop.
  • I was a 15yo boy in 1972, and I was so intrigued by the historical Hinckley Fire, that I hitch-hiked (against my mother's better judgement) from Blaine, Minnesota, to Hinckley, just to visit the monument memorial. A man by the name of Boston Corbett, is on the list on the memorial wall of those people who perished in the great fire on September 1st, 1894, and is believed to have shot & killed the infamous John Wilkes Booth, the assassin who shot & killed President Abraham Lincoln.
  • Very Interesting!!
