The Meade County Historical Museum in Meade, Kansas has displays typical to County Historical Museum, but also has several exhibits that are unique to this museum. Reasons to visit the Meade County Historical Museum include a large exhibit of western saddles, horse drawn wagons, and a very informative exhibit devoted to an archeological dig along Crooked Creek, where Native Americans had a community from 1280-1430 A. D.
The Meade County Historical Society also operates the Dalton Gang Hideout, a few blocks away. Both museums are open seven days a week and I salute the community of Meade for keeping these attractions year around.
