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.
