Evening at the Museum: Railroads Across Kansas
November 16, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
“Railroads Across Kansas” is the theme for the two November sessions, with Museum Education Coordinator Johnetta Hebrlee providing the noon presentation, with a focus on the Finney County area; and Dr. Leo Oliva speaking at the evening session. Oliva is a prolific Kansas history author and retired Fort Hays State University professor who is planning to focus on the way that 19th Century railroad development impacted settlement, immigration, Native American life and the success or failure of numerous Kansas communities. His appearance is possible because of a generous grant from Humanities Kansas.
The museum is returning to its pre-COVID practice of offering light self-service refreshments and inviting attendees, if they wish, to bring their own lunch or dinner. Though not required, masks and hand sanitizer will be available in the refreshment area. Those interested in participating are advised to use their own judgement about precautions and virus immunity.
