We are so excited to open the museum for new hours on Saturdays! In addition to our hours on Tuesdays from 9 am to 4 pm & Wednesdays from 9 am to noon, come by on Saturdays from 10am to 2pm. Other times can be arranged by appointment. The safety of our volunteers and visitors is important to us and so we continue to wear masks indoors.

Bus Tour of Ghost Towns Around Tonganoxie

Ghost Town Tour - May 2018

Thirty-one people went on a guided tour of ghost towns and other historic sites around Tonganoxie on Saturday May 5, 2018.  Perry Walters, Virginia Seymour, and Carrie Ritchey provided the narrative.  Highlights included the ghost towns of Little Stranger, Summit, Old Jarbalo, and Boling, as well as historic sites such as the Little Stranger Christian Church, the Cliffs on Stranger Creek, and a stop for cookies at the Boling Grange Hall.

Watch for the date of the second TCHS Ghost Town Bus Tour.  This tour will focus on the southern part of the county. The tour will take place in the Spring of 2020.

And if you want to get a headstart on learning about the ghost towns, come by the museum to purchase our newest DVD – Ghost Towns Around Tonganoxie.
