Museum Announces Opening and Summer Schedule

Private tours may be arranged during times when the museum is closed. For more information, contact Carolyn at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 email@example.com.
