Museum Announces Opening and Summer Schedule 

The Kaw City Museum will reopen and begin summer hours on the weekend of June 13/14. Visit the museum any Saturday or Sunday from 1-5 pm until Labor Day. Private tours may be arranged during times when the museum is closed. For more information, contact Carolyn at Admission is free.

Kaw City Museum commemorates the history of a small, northern Oklahoma town, forced to relocate in the early 70’s when the United States Corps of Engineers picked its fertile land as the site for the 38-mile Kaw Lake. Housed in the old town’s train depot, the museum is operated by volunteers and is funded through donations and fund-raisers. Established in 1972, the museum has undergone several expansions as its collection of artifacts has grown.

Kaw City – A Pictorial History is available from the museum for donation of $20 or more. Written by native Kaw Citian Annette Pittman and her daughter, Susan Rutledge, the book features 200 photographs collected over a dozen decades from the Old Town’s residents. Worn and aged, each image provides a glimpse of Kaw City’s early days. All proceeds benefit the museum. For ordering information please contact Carolyn Godberson: (580) 763-2223 or
