The former school was reopened in 1988 as the Great Sandhills Museum, with exhibits showcasing the area's natural and human history.
The village is home to various works of public art, including cartoon-like fire hydrants, murals, and the world's largest metal wheat sculpture. The latter was created in 1990 and stands 33 feet (10 m) tall.
