TCHS Welcomes You to Tonganoxie, KS

Tonganoxie was once home to the largest dairy farms in Kansas. The TCHS historical site is located on 10 acres of one of those dairies. 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.
Come visit us!
Tuesdays 9:00am – 4:00pm
Wednesdays 9:00am – Noon
Sundays 1:00pm – 4:00pm
Tours can also be arranged at other times by appointment.
In case of severe weather, ice, or heavy snow, the museum will be closed.

TCHS meets in the Reno Methodist Church building on the fourth Tuesday of every month (except June and December) at 7:00 pm for a brief business meeting and an historical program. The meetings are open to the public and there is no charge.
