Originally an inn near the railroad, The Garst Museum offers over 35,000 square feet of exhibit space within six building wings. 1946, owner Nellie Garst Menke donated the building )her home) to the local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). The DAR created a partnership with the Darke County Historical Society to maintain the house. The National Annie Oakley Center, presenting the foremost collection dedicated to the life of sharpshooter Annie Oakley, is a museum feature. Other major exhibits include the Treaty of Greene Ville and "Mad" Anthony Wayne, Tecumseh and Native Americans, Lowell Thomas. The museum also offers an extensive military collection, period American furnishings, county history, and agricultural artifacts, as well as a well-staffed genealogy research library and a unique store.
