Becoming Johnson County

The Johnson County Museum tells the long story of the place we now call Johnson County, Kansas. From the Kansa, Missouria, and Osage peoples to the “Bleeding Kansas” era; from the dairy farms to the suburban neighborhood developments; from segregated communities to an increasingly diverse population; from Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant to business parks and corporate headquarters: it is all in our “Becoming Johnson County” main exhibit! Can’t visit the museum right now? Watch this series of overview videos to get a sense of what you’ll see when you can make it in to explore the exhibits for yourself, and to better understand Johnson County’s history!
