Santa Fé Trail Center
Many Kansas counties have a county museum, but Pawnee County's local museum has evolved into something much more significant. Known as the Santa Fé Trail Center, it serves not only as the repository of local history, but also as the primary museum dedicated to one of the most important commercial routes of nineteenth century America: the Santa Fé Trail. From the 1820's to the 1870's, the trail carried the trade between Missouri and New Mexico. Our location is near the midpoint of this trail and the museum is dedicating to telling the story of that trail as well as other aspects of local history.
