The Kiowa County Historical Museum houses area memorabilia collected by The Kiowa Co. Historical Society. The restored Hunter Drug Store Soda Fountain stands proudly as a living history exhibit in the Kiowa County Commons Building, being enjoyed by new generations as well as devoted pre-tornado patrons.

The original Museum Building, prior to the EF5 tornado in May of 2007, was donated to the Historical Society by Beulah Wheeler, in memory of her late husband, Wendell & the heirs of J. M. Caplinger who wished the memory of their ancestor’s and the building to be preserved. Today a new building houses the artifacts and the soda fountain.
