Date: Friday, October 8

Time: Leaving Wyandotte County Historical Museum at 8:30 a.m.   Returning at 12:30 p.m.

Registration Fee: $25 per person (Lunch included)

Send registration fee to the Wyandotte County Historical Society & Museum Tour, 631 N. 126th, Bonner Springs, KS 66012.  For more information contact Trish Schurkamp at (913) 573-5002.

The bus tour in June SOLD OUT, so we are offering a second tour on a first come (pay) first serve basis.  This tour will be completely different from the first, so even if you attended the first, it would be educational and fun to attend again!

During this week of oppressive heat, come to the Wyandotte County Museum to view the permanent exhibits, as well as the Annual Quilt Show.  It may be hot outside, but it is nice and cool in the museum.  Don’t forget that we have free admission!!!!

We are also planning some great fall activities, including “A Bus Tour of (Western) Wyandotte County Lost Communities”. Also, if you missed our previous Geneaology Workshop or Ghosts of Wyandotte County program, we will be offering both a second time.  For more information, look under the Events page at the top of the page.
