The Building

The Donnelly House was originally McKenzie’s Temperance Hotel and Boarding House. It had rooms for rent and a taproom located in the center room on the first floor. It was occupied by the Donnelly family until the early 1970’s but only as a private home. The building had fallen into a poor state of repair. In 1971 the building was purchased by the Town of Wheatland for the residents of Mumford to house the library, Wheatland Historical Office, and a meeting room for senior citizens. It serves the people of Mumford on a daily basis and is a constant reminder of our treasured past.
