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 C.W. Weller. The third floor includes a nice exhibit using fixtures from the old Union Pacific depot ticket office and waiting room.
