Stafford County History and Museum

We have a large collection of Stafford County newspapers, rural school records, family files and obituaries. We also have a substantial Civil War library and a collection of books written by local authors and history books written about Stafford County. One of our most famous collections includes an estimated 29,000 glass plate negatives from the W.R. Gray Studio of photography in St. John, Kansas. We provide research services to help patrons with local roots discover their Stafford County ancestors as far back as the late 1800s. Use the Collections link above to learn more.
