Old Cowtown Museum

Cowtown is a living history museum where you'll experience life in the 1870s as you immerse yourself in a sampling of the sights, sounds and activities common to a midwestern cattle town. You'll experience the dramatic clash of Victorian ideals and economic realities as these competing forces strove to create an economically viable cattle town and a Victorian metropolis. Try a wagon ride, hear the ring of the blacksmith anvil, and visit the humble home one of the town's founder, Darius Munger. Be sure to stop at the home of the Marshal Murdock, who almost single-handedly promoted the town through his newspaper. After you smell what the farmer's wife is cooking for her family, try an ice cold sarsaparilla in the saloon
