Ogallala was a wild and woolly cow town in 1887 when I was built.  I sat outside of town on a hill like the classy lady I was intended to be.  The quality that went into my building made me a jewel on the prairie and the pride of the community.  I've now lasted so long that I was put on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Ogallala Mansion on the Hill is open to the public during the summer months from Memorial Day until two weeks after Labor Day.  The hours of operation are Tuesday Thru Saturday, from 9am to 12 noon and 1pm until 4pm in the afternoon.  Sunday hours are 1pm to 4pm.  The mansion is closed on Mondays.



The admission fee is $2.00 for adults and $1.00 for children 5 - 12 and children under 5 are free.

The Mansion on the Hill is owned and maintained by the Keith County Historical Society, a non-profit corporation that purchased the house from Arthur W. Campbell in January of 1966 to use as a museum and memorial to pioneer families.  The subsequent restoration of the structure and landscaping of the surrounding area were made possible by the work and contributions of many local citizens and a fifteen thousand dollar grant from Mrs. Clarice Goodall of Ogallala.

The Mansion on the Hill and the District #7 one room school can be found at the corner of North Spruce and 10th Street
