Mission Statement

About Us

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Prospect House and Civil War Museum, formed to share the story of "Cap" Colehour, Civil War Veteran and entrepreneur, who settled in the West Central Minnesota community of Battle Lake after the Civil War. The purpose of sharing "Cap’s" house, observations, memorabilia and life is to open a door to history through which those who pass achieve greater understanding and appreciation for an earlier and important time in the making of our nation.
