Butterfield Trail Museum and Historical Association, Russell Springs – Kansas Tuesdays August 4, 2020

I decided to focus on Logan County, Kansas for this week’s Kansas Tuesdays post. Saw this on Wikipedia: – Butterfield Trail Museum and Historical Association https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Logan_County_Courthouse_(Kansas)  –  and chose it for this week’s post. Due to COVID-19, check with them before scheduling a visit. It used to be the old Logan County Courthouse before the county seat was moved.
