We Made Baldur

The thousands of people who have made Baldur their home over the years, since its inception in 1890, have been a fascinating group, full of strength and wisdom, wit and vigour, kindness and foresight.

Argyle Museum

The Argyle Museum is a must see when in Baldur. The museum first started when Dr. Hanks donated multiple pieces of his medical equipment that he used throughout his practices. In addition to the medical showcase, it holds a WWl and WWll display, along with the newest addition to the museum, an Icelandic exhibit. The Icelandic exhibit features a hand painted mural, and many other interesting artifacts. Many other historic displays can be found throughout the Argyle Museum.
