Onaga Historical Society opens for the summer

May 21, 2014

Starting June 6th, the Onaga Historical Society will be open on Friday afternoons from 1:00 to 4:00. It is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to come explore local history and world history. There are artifacts from many places. It is always open by appointment by contacting the City of Onaga at 785-889-4456.

The museum complex has Victory school house, which used to be located south of Onaga, on Victory road.

The log cabin was discovered on the south side of highway 63, while tearing down an old house and it has been moved to the museum complex. The three legged windmill had been located south on the Onaga road. The Union Pacific caboose is fun to explore along with a large Morton building and another smaller metal building, chuck full of items from porcelain dolls to fully restored doctor's buggy. There is also a racing sulky, made in Marysville for trotting horses.

Individuals and groups are most welcome to see some of the treasures of Onaga and the many things, some from faraway. Everyone is welcome to explore and there is no charge. Donations are appreciated.

Linda Price, Vice-President
