The Fraternal Hall, at 2nd and Chestnut Sts. in Kimball, Nebraska, was built in 1903-04. It includes Classical Revival architecture. It is now operated as Plains Historical Museum.

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1] It was deemed significant as "the only prototype of an academic architectural style in Kimball County." It served three fraternal lodge chapters: of Knights of Pythias, of Woodmen, and of Royal Neighbors of America that joined together to create a new building, when the lease they had shared for a previous space was running out.[2]
