Hello and Welcome to Decatur County, Kansas.

Those researching family history, house history or local history may find our records very helpful. Researchers are encouraged to schedule an appointment when planning a trip to the Museum

to ensure the best service possible .


If you have information that you would share with us such as stories, pictures, memorabilia, etc please email me.    Working together we can make this a valuable resource as we read through old public records, walk cemeteries, and sort through boxes of photographs and postcards while we research our family histories...

         I am Sharleen Wurm ... Director and Historian for the Museum

and the County
