This complex of authentic buildings from the 1800s along with the history museum traces the evolution of Wamego and Pottawatomie County from the first inhabitants, the Konza and Pottawatomie Indians, to the history of the Underground Railroad in the area, and the artifacts brought back from the Columbian Exposition of 1893.
This Prairie Town Village consists of authentic buildings from the 1800s moved in from across the county, including a one-room schoolhouse, a log cabin built in the late 1840s, the first jail in Pottawatomie County, and several other historic buildings which sit nestled under large cottonwood and sycamore trees along the east side of City Park.
The park is also home to several statues from the Columbian Exposition and is one of the top-rated picnic spots in the state.
