In September 1963 the Ulen Historical Society was organized with Ihlor Bjerke as president, Ray Wilmore as vice president, and Eliza Knutson as secretary-treasurer. The museum was built in 1902 by Edwin Evans, with a second story added in 1914. Preserving our area's history and displaying its artifacts was the driving force of this group.
The new Ulen Historical Society was organized in 2004 to build upon the dreams of the original Ulen Historical Society.
The Ulen Museum held its Grand Opening on Sunday, August 4, 2007. Highlights of the opening day included a wood carving demonstration and music by a string quartet. Visitors came from miles around to tour the new Ulen Museum.
