The Wakefield Museum Association was created in 1974 to serve as custodian of the history of the community of Wakefield, Kansas, and the surrounding Republican River Valley communities. It serves as custodian of the history of the city of Wakefield and the surrounding area, to collect and display memorabilia of the communities, and to archive the genealogical records of the people who founded, lived in and or presently living in the communities. The Museum has over 6,000 square feet of displays and artifacts including Native American, African, veterans, families and their histories, sports, schools, churches, and businesses. An expansion of approximately 10,000 sq. feet is planned over the next four years.
