Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum Review

The Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum is the kind of small-town museum that's worth stopping for if you're interested in the frontier history of the region, including the Johnson County Cattle War. It contains Native American, military, outlaw, and ranching artifacts collected by a local pharmacist who was a close friend of area Native Americans. Starting in 2007 the museum began a $300,000 renovation expected to be completed in 2011. Visitors will discover new exhibits and interpretive opportunities.
