Peabody Museum makes a comeback

After a two-year hiatus, Peabody Museum is preparing for a reopening.

The building, which started as Kansas’ first free library in 1874, was converted to a museum in 1961. It now features historical displays like past Peabody High School class photos, artifacts and uniforms from World Wars I and II, and newspaper clippings.

The biggest attraction is an exhibit in the museum’s back room which features an antique dollhouse and more than 20 dolls, said Marcia Sebree of the Peabody Historical Society.

The grand reopening will take place May 25 at the museum, located on E. Division Ave. next to Peabody Township Library.
