The Chester C. Owens Sumner Alumni Room houses the history, artifacts, and memorabilia of Sumner High School, the only high school in the state of Kansas that was specifically established for Blacks from 1905 to 1978. In its short history, much was accomplished, academically, athletically and historically.

Museum hours: Open every 2nd Tuesday and 4th Thursday of each month, from 10am-2pm. Free admission. Although the museum is open only two days of each month, we will accommodate groups of three or more by opening the museum for viewing if notified two or three days in advance.
