Lane County Historical Museum - Dighton, Kansas
The Lane County Historical Museum in Dighton, Kansas is a small museum with very nicely done exhibits. The museum opened in 1977 and expanded in 2014-2017. A third phase is being planned. There is a large museum store with a nice selection of gifts, clothing, handcrafted items, books, music figures and post cards. We think most visitors will be satisfied with 30-45 minutes.
One of the most attractive displays is a recreated 1920 country store and post office. Other displays depict a harness shop, one room school, cafe, dress shop, barber shop and more Lane County History.
During our 2019 visit to the museum the docent showed us a reproduction sod house which was built in 1961. The grounds also have old farm machinery on display.
