Of Land and People: Our Community at the Crossroads of Change
December 7, 2020 @ 8:00 am - February 7, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
North Newton is strategically located at a historic crossroads in south-central Kansas. Of Land and People: Our Community at the Crossroads of Change celebrates the land on which our museum and community is placed, honors the people who have lived and worked on it, and invites visitors to reflect on the profound changes that have occurred here.
Of Land and People will introduce the story of First Kansans who hunted and traveled along Sand Creek; ponder the changes to the prairie and the enrichment to our community brought by immigrants; and explore the rich legacy of trails past and present in our town.
This exhibition is a local companion exhibit to the current special Smithsonian exhibit, “Crossroads: Change in Rural America” that is showing at Kauffman Museum through Jan. 17. This exhibit is FREE to view on Saturdays.
