2001 - 2002
What's New with the Sumner County Historical and Genealogical Society?!
Lot - The Chisholm Trail
& Family Center
The Chisholm Trail History and Family Center will be open to welcome and serve researchers for the All-Class Reunion on May 25th, 2002, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Come and see your old classmates, and come by and say Hi!
Sumner County genealogists and historicans moved books from storage to the new Chisholm Trail History and Family Center on March 10, 2001, and researchers stop each week at the Sumner County Historical and Genealogiical Center. For more information on hours and contact info please check out the Center's website.
Centrally located in Wellington at 208 N. Washington in the the North-east corner of the Memorial Auditorium just two blocks from the Sumner County Courthouse, right around the corner from the Wellington Public Library, and down the street from the City of Wellington offices.
Centrally located in the county as well, for an easy drive to cemeteries, towns, or your family's farm or homestead. Since its opening in the spring of 2001, the center has already almost outgrown it's current facilities thanks to the hard work of the members, and generous donation of books and materials.
