Geary County Historical Museum - Junction City, Kansas
The Geary County Historical Museum occupies an
attractive limestone building which opened as the Junction City High School
in 1906. There are three floors of permanent and rotating exhibits. The
displays and organization are far better than most local historical museums.
We found the most unique and interesting part of the museum
to be the room devoted to cameras and photos of the community by a variety
of photographers, including A.G. Emery, A. P. Trott, J.J. Pennell, and
Union Pacific depot ticket office and waiting room exhibit on the third
The "Main Street" gallery at the left was completed in 1993 and
depicts six businesses typical of the early 1900s.
