Museum Mission

The purpose of the Hutchinson County Historical Museum is to collect, preserve, and to interpret the heritage of Hutchinson County, with particular emphasis on the oil field and boomtown story of the 1920-1930 era, for public benefit.


The Hutchinson County Historical Museum collects, preserves, and exhibits principally those artifacts, publications, archival materials, photographs, ephemera, and other items that are relevant to the settlement, and early historical development of the county.
