Cheyenne County Museum
Address: 201 W Hwy. 36 St Francis, KS 67756
This museum was born from a vision of several local citizens who wanted to see that the history of Cheyenne County was preserved for future generations.
The museum features a diorama complete with prehistoric fossils uncovered locally. This diorama shows life as it progressed over the millennia on the High Plains and includes furniture and period exhibits of frontier life. All of the exhibits are of Cheyenne County history.
The Harvey addition of the museum features many rooms display depicting the early pioneer’s life in Cheyenne County. Be sure to see the Doctor’s Office, County School Room Wheeler Post Office, dining room, bedroom, kitchen, soda fountain, and the Moline Parlor Organ.
The front of the building has been finished with native Cheyenne County rock giving it a unique look. At the entrance to the museum, old bricks from the St. Francis Brick Factory (1888) have been laid.
The Old Country Church, built by the First German Evangelical Lutheran Immanuel Church Congregation in 1914, was moved to the museum site and is used for many community events.
From April to September the museum is open afternoons, Wednesday through Friday, and by appointment. For more information, contact 785-332-3569 or 785-332-2504.
