Tonganoxie was once home to the largest dairy farm in Kansas. The TCHS historical site is located on 10 acres of that original dairy. The buildings include: the Fairchild/Knox barn, a 1929 dairy barn with milk parlor and hay barn, silo, and working windmill; the Honey Valley School, a 1916 one room school house; the Reno Methodist Church, a 1918 church; and a 1936 Fire Pumper Truck.

The museum and buildings are open to the public.
Wednesdays 9:00am – Noon, year round
Sundays 1:00pm – 4:00pm, April thru October
Tours can also be arranged at other times by appointment.
Admission is free – Donations are appreciated.

TCHS meets in the Reno Methodist Church building on the fourth Tuesday of every month (except June and December) at 7:00 pm for a brief business meeting and an historical program. The meetings are open to the public.

TCHS is a non-profit organization, funded through dues, donations, memorials, building rentals, grants and fund raising activities.
