Tonganoxie Historical Research

Artifacts and Historical Information

The artifacts on display in the museum are but a fraction of the artifacts and historical information that is housed at the historical site. There are many documents and photographs in the archives that are waiting for local history research projects.

Our volunteers can assist in genealogic research, as well as other local history research.

Call the museum for additional information.


As a non-profit, privately funded organization run by volunteers, we have found that we must charge for copies that are reproduced by request. Our charges are:

Black & White copies - $0.15 each
Color Copies - $0.50 each
Copies on photo paper - $1.00 each
