  • The Butler County History Center and Kansas Oil Museum will be celebrating life in the 1800s during an event for the whole family on Saturday.
    The History Center will be hosting Campfires, Cavalry and Cowboys from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mountain men, trappers and fur traders will be out at the log cabin, showing off their muzzle loaders, powder horns, furs, and other goods and wares. Civil War Cavalry, in full uniform, will set up camp on the grounds with their accoutrements and trade battle stories. And rounding out the 19th Century, cowboys and their horses will be riding the grounds like they once did on the Western frontier, in full gear and period costumes.
    In honor of upcoming Father’s Day, all dads are admitted free with another paid admission. The Butler County History Center and Kansas Oil Museum is located at 383 E. Central. Hours are 10 a.m.t o 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.
