Description

The Ohlsen-Jenner House was one of the first houses built in Loup City. Located on the south side of town, it is built along Dead Horse Creek and just south is the former site of the Ohlsen brickyard. The house was built in 1889 by John Ohlsen, the co-owner of the Ohlsen Brothers Brick Factory of Loup City, and added on to in 1909. The last residents of the home were Robert and Dora Ohlsen (daughter of John Ohlsen) Jenner. The house and current museum site were purchased by the Sherman County Historical Society in 1988 and the house has been under restoration for the past two years.
