Shows how the post rock was obtained from stone outcroppings and many of the ways in which it was used in addition to use as fence posts. The fence post limestone (post rock) is a heritage unique to north central Kansas. Limestone posts have supported their barbed wire fences around thousands of prairie acres since the 1870s. The museum is housed in an original 1880s limestone house and features a depiction of a late 19th century farmyard with original stone clothesline posts, windmill supports, and other items made of limestone. An portion of an actual stone quarry moved from southwestern Rush County is located inside of the museum.
