Purpose

To preserve and interpret artifacts and documents of the county.

Let's Begin. . .

A meeting was held on October 28, 1982 at the Sublette Library, Sublette, Ks of the people interested in forming the Haskell County Historical Society.  With Duane Murphy acting as President the historical Society was started.  The Santa Fe Depot was purchased and donated for a Museum.  A basement was dug at the North side of the fairground and the depot was relocated there.  In 1988 a large addition was added to the depot.  This is a very fine museum full of Haskell County artifiacts and we are about full again.  Those present for that first meeting were; Ida Jo Fourot, Bayne Foster, Nora Mae Foster,  Mr. and Mrs. L.C. Leaonard, Merle Wright, Ed and Eltrude Hall, Ruby Rutledge, Paul Weindner, Ema Lea Henley, Barb Glover - Monitor Chief, Clint and Delaine Stalker, Tom Ungles, Duane Murphy
