Sponsored by the Linn County Historical Society, the museum has one of the best genealogy libraries in the region. Displays relate a wide range of county history, including the Mine Creek Battle, lead mining in Kansas, and an old country store exhibit. Learn about Indians who inhabited this area; early explorers; French traders and trappers, the first lead mine in Kansas and the Sugar Creek Mission and the Trail of Death of the Potawatomie Indians.
View displays such as the Old General Store, recreated and filled with thousands of bits of memorabilia. There’s a Print Shop, the old bank teller cage with bullet-proof front, a display on coal mining, and school exhibits. Walk through the Cox Car Museum and see an old Model T and other classic cars and trucks.
