About Ellis County Historical Society Museum
View our history in the Main Gallery, from the frontier era through today. Visit our Saloon and learn to play faro, a popular card game in the Old West. As always, our Discovery Center for children of all ages (located in the balcony) is open for learning fun with vintage clothes to try on, old time toys, farm animals, diorama, and much more. The Stone Chapel, built in 1879, is one of the oldest church buildings in the area and the site of our ongoing temporary exhibits. Visit our Museum Store and take home some Kansas souvenirs.
The Younker Harness Shop, an original store from the early 1900s located on the museum grounds, displays saddles and other related items, telling the story of Ellis County ranchers.
