Wabaunsee County Historical Museum

Wabaunsee County Historical Museum

Do you have a keen interest in history? Or a specialist in the field researching the past? Then you should visit Alma to take a tour of the Wabaunsee County Historical Museum, situated at the corner of 3rd and Missouri.

The hours are 10 am to 4 pm Tuesday through Saturday; they are closed for lunch between noon and 1 pm. They are open from 1 to 4 pm on Sundays. For a real treat, visit on Tuesdays or Wednesdays when you will find the ladies of the local quilting bee working on quilts that are destined to become heirlooms.

The museum also has a volunteer genealogy group that meets on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month, and they are happy to assist in any way they can. You will even find a headstone dating back to the Revolutionary War of 1812 in our cemetery, although there is no historical record to confirm this.
