"Glory of the Hills" Exhibit

The Butler County History Center's "Glory of the Hills" exhibit, in El Dorado, deals with every aspect of the Kansas Flint Hills. In fact, if you are coming from the south, it is a great place to learn about the Kansas Flint Hills before taking a tour of the Flint Hills!

“Glory of the Hills” features the unique ecological, cultural and agricultural history of the Flint Hills and Butler County. This new exhibit will help visitors understand that the Flint Hills are a precious remnant of the once vast grasslands. Through historic photographs and artifacts, the exhibit gives visitors a glimpse of early native inhabitants utilizing the land, of the first settlers devoted to the land, and of 21st Century farmers and ranchers managing a natural resource. This stimulating display of the Flint Hills, farming and ranching pays tribute to the land and the people who came here seeking not to dominate the land, but to live in productive harmony.

Exhibition can be viewed during museum hours: Tuesday – Friday 9am – 5pm and Saturday 12 – 5pm. Admission is charged. The Butler County History Center & Kansas Oil Museum is a non-profit educational institution. Website: telephone: 316-321-9333.

See you in the Kansas Flint Hills! ;-)
