Baxter Springs Heritage Center and Museum, Baxter – Kansas Tuesdays April 6, 2021

I chose to look in Cherokee County, Kansas for this week’s Kansas Tuesdays post. I went with the Baxter Springs Heritage Center and Museum, Baxter Springs – It may have restrictions due to COVID-19. It’s run by the Baxter Springs Historical Society.

Looks the building is still there per Google Maps street view. Call to see if museum is still open, hours, and admission price before planning a visit.
