Tonganoxie Historical Society

Museum

 

About the museum:

The museum is located in the Fairchild/Knox milk parlor.  The grand opening was held on June 14, 2003 during the annual Tonganoxie Days celebration.  Museum displays depict the Delaware Indians, the town’s early history, family life, leisure, schools, dairy farming, farming, businesses, and government. New exhibits and items are displayed as our collection continues to grow.

Visit the museum.

The museum and buildings are open to the public every Wednesday 9:00 AM to Noon (weather permitting); and every Sunday 1:00PM to 4:00PM, from April through October.

Plan to stop by the Gift Shop during your visit. Some of the interesting things you will find include Fred Leimkuhler's pen and ink note cards; John Cass Lenahan's "Yesteryears" series, replete with a myriad of historic photos of the Tonganoxie area; Deloris White's "100 Years of Graduates of Tonganoxie High School" and TCHS's "Cookbook", packed with mouth watering recipes. There is also a selection of TCHS denim shirts, tees, ball caps and visors.
