Hodgeman

  County, KS

Coming soon to the Museum...

"Friday Night Lights - 8 Man Style"

Hodgeman County was chosen as a partner for the Kansas Humanities Tour of the Smithsonian Institution's traveling exhibition, Hometown Teams in 2015!

Truly the heart of our community...the Hodgeman County Courthouse is listed on both the State and National Register of Historic Places.  It was built in 1929 and is still in full use today.  Beautiful  Art Deco architectural elements throughout.

Currently grants from the Heritage Trust Fund are allowing us to repair and restore the original Browne Windows...the 1st and 2nd floors are  complete.  Make sure and visit the photo display on the 2nd Floor and the Court Room on the 3rd Floor.  


Bring History to life with displays of fossils and Indian artifacts prior to written history of the region, as well as artifacts brought by settlers who founded Hodgeman County.  Early pioneer life is depicted with displays of tools, clothing, a law office, school, post office and vignettes of early day settler homes. 

Displays of American Involvement in wars from the Civil War through today will excite the Military History Buffs...and a Service Station from the 1960's will bring back fond memories!

The Haun Museum was the first house in the town site of Jetmore, built in 1879 by T.S. & Elizabeth Haun, founders of Jetmore (then called Buckner).  It is now listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places. 

The displays are ever-changing.  Special displays and events are often held at the Haun Museum.
