We stopped in while spending an afternoon in Cottonwood Falls. We were pleasantly surprised by this little museum. The Knute Rockne exhibit was pretty interesting. I had no idea he had he died close to there. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed talking with the lady at the main desk.

The Knute Rockne exhibit is locally significant and a national historical event. Very nice. Beyond that - the place smells terrible - like a musty, dirty basement. Utterly unacceptable for a tourist attraction. The people were nice enough and the $3 admission could honestly be a big higher if it meant they could clean the place. A lot of artifacts... More

My husband and I stopped in to do a little family history research. The staff was very helpful. The museum has some interesting artifacts as well.

As I said before I have been to the court house many different times. Mostly during the redao season in Strong City. But I also have many family members who live there. So as part of the many reasons to visit I have been to the court house more then once and since I like history it was of interest... More

A combination of a tribute to Will Rodgers (whose only connection to the town is the fact that he died in a plane crash near here) and a collection of memorabilia from an rural and agricultural way of life now consigned to history. If you travel to get a sense of places, people and times that are different than our... More

This is a great museum. Many, many, interesting artifacts (some of which I have never seen at other museums) from the pioneer days are on display. To me the highlight was the country records room, where they have books and ledgers of the town government. One can pick up the books and peruse them at will! It was fascinating to... More

The CCHSM is a treasure trove, especially for geneology enthusiasts! The director is really helpful and is a lifelong local resident. Many fabulous artifacts from the past grace the Museum, both inside and out. They have enlarged it over the years to add new "old" things. It is well worth the stop in.

The Chase County Historical Museum & Library was established in 1976. The building itself was built in 1882 and housed the Chase County National Bank until it closed its doors in 1928. Other businesses, i.e. insurance, lawyers, doctors, dentists, were located here from the time the bank closed its doors until the Historical Society purchased the building. This is an... More
