 Upcoming Events

Tickets are now available for Geary County Historical Society's Annual Meeting on November 13th. Starting at 6:30 p.m.
The event features a dinner and a short board meeting followed by a Kansas Humanities Council presentation about "Women Soldiers of the Civil War."
The Pilot Club will cater a delicious beef pot roast dinner with potatoes, carrots and onions, along with salad, green beans, rolls, and assorted pies. Dinner tickets are $15. Please call ahead to reserve a seat.
Following dinner, Kansas historian Diane Eickhoff will tell us all about the brave women who dared to fight in the Civil War, including two women from Kansas who dressed as men in order to enlist. This program is sponsored by the Kansas Humanities Council's Speaker's Bureau.
While dinner tickets are $15, the program is open for free to the public; please call the museum at 785-238-1666 to RSVP

We need home-made items such as cookies, pies and cakes for events like the Ice Cream Social, and educational programs at the Museum throughout the year.
