Roaring Through the 1920’s in Kearney

When you visit Kearney Historic Museum between March 1 and August 31, 2021, you will journey back to when Missouri was celebrating her 100th birthday and Kearney was in her sixties.  There will be a variety of displays depicting daily life in the early 1920’s in Kearney and the surrounding area. Clothing to cooking, money to music, even hats to hooch! Big changes were in the air, there were horse drawn wagons and automobiles sharing the dirt streets here in Kearney at that time. This event will give visitors a good overview of rural Missouri at her Centennial Celebration. It will help them understand and visualize the changes that were happening in the early 1920’s—not just in Kearney, but also the surrounding area. This celebration of Missouri’s Centennial is free to the public. Hours are Fridays and Saturdays from 10am to 2pm and by appointment. The Kearney Historic Museum is located at 101 South Jefferson in downtown Kearney by the water fountain. Handicapped accessible rear entrance and restroom. Call 816-903-1856 for more information.
