Wichita County Historical Society and the Museum of the Great Plains of Leoti, Leoti – Kansas Tuesdays November 19, 2019

I decided to focus on Wichita County for this week’s Kansas Tuesdays post. It’s amazing how many people and a few TV scripts assumed that Wichita, Kansas is in Wichita County. It’s not; it’s in Sedgwick County. Wichita County is in the western part (central with 3 counties above it and 3 counties below it) of Kansas. Sedgwick County is south central Kansas. I did a check for Leoti, the county seat and found this on Yelp: https://www.yelp.com/biz/museum-of-the-great-plains-of-leoti-leoti?osq=things+to+do. The museum is run by the Wichita County Historical Society.
