The Volland Store is honored to be one of six venues in Kansas to host the traveling exhibit from the Smithsonian. Beginning March 1, The Volland Store will begin taking reservations for the traveling Smithsonian exhibition, Crossroads: Change in Rural America . This in-person experience engages visitors in conversation about the unique identity of rural communities as they adapt to meet the changing needs of their citizens. Learn how small towns are overcoming challenges through innovative solutions. Celebrate the stories of rural Americans, past and present, as they embrace new ideas and build sustainable futures. Visitors can connect their experiences through the concurrent local exhibit, Deep Roots and New Growth in Wabaunsee County, a reflection on how our own rural communities have responded to change. In conjunction with the in-person display, explore different, related themes each week on The Volland Store’s social media pages and website. Beginning with the tallgrass prairie and tracing the development of the region, Deep Roots tells the story of Wabaunsee County through photographs, videos, interviews and presentations at: www.vollandfoundation.org
