Ellinwood School/Community Library will be a partner host to the Smithsonian Crossroads Exhibit! We will kick off our exhibit with a Chamber Coffee Ribbon Cutting at 10 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 16.

This exhibit will tell stories about our community. The Historic Wolf Hotel will set up a display in our magazine area. Kansas Earth and Sky Candle Company will be represented in our display cases. The Museum of Ellinwood, the Ellinwood Historical Society, our library, along with photographer Jerry Smith have all collaborated for a display of what some of our Main Street businesses use to look like with what they look like today, including their written histories.

The display will be up through Dec. 2nd. Watch for upcoming events related to our exhibit.
