Pioneer Bluffs is a place for people to connect to history, community and sustainability. On the National Register of Historic Places, Pioneer Bluffs features three beautiful barns built between 1872 and 1915, several other outbuildings, a stretch of stone fence circa 1870 and the 1908 home of Henry Rogler and Maud Sauble Rogler, along Crocker Creek. These buildings, land, and a community garden tell the fascinating story of ranching life in the early 20th century and a sustainable lifestyle today.
The Gallery at Pioneer Bluffs exhibits contemporary art from local, national, and international artists.
Summer hours are Fridays through Mondays, 10 am to 5 pm. Winter hours are Mondays, 10 am to 5 pm. Our doors are also open by appointment for groups to tour or meet at Pioneer Bluffs.
The mission of the Pioneer Bluffs Foundation is to celebrate the history and experience of the tallgrass prairie and its Flint Hills ranching heritage; and to revitalize Pioneer Bluffs as a community resource and gathering place where we explore sustainable ways to live in harmony with nature.
