October museum talks focused on street, place names

The Finney County Historical Museum’s fall series of Evening at the Museum and History at High Noon presentations will continue at noon Oct. 12 and 7 p.m. Oct. 18, exploring the names of various streets and additional locations in the community, as well as the stories behind them.

Though hosted and coordinated by the museum, the presentations are sponsored by the Western Kansas Community Foundation and take place at noon the second Wednesday and 7 p.m. the third Tuesday of the month, September-November, and January-April.  

Admission is free and those attending should use the museum’s north entrance.

The museum is located at 403 S. Fourth Street in Garden City’s Finnup Park and listeners are welcome to bring their own lunch or dinner, if desired, with the museum providing cookies and beverages.

Entitled “In Case You’ve Ever Wondered,” each of the two October programs will be presented by Museum Education Coordinator Johnetta Hebrlee.

“We may also be solving some other quirky little mysteries in the community,” Hebrlee said.
