Platte City, Missouri
History, Historic House, Historical Society
The museum has a rare, and one of the most complete, Civil War collections, of Col. Charles E. Sinnet, a Union soldier. It was donated by Frank and Delia Goodden and John and Lois Schott. It is housed in a beautiful showcase, handmade by Jerry Martin of Platte City.
The grounds of the house once included a hay barn and an outhouse in the northwest corner of the yard. In 1978 a black wrought iron marker was installed in the southeast corner of the yard in memory of the local Dillingham family.
