History of Farming 8/16/2005

This is a very unique place to spend a Saturday, or any day for that matter. Located in Bonner Springs, KS, the Agricultural Hall of Fame represents the evolution of farming. You can take tours and see how farming has changed over the years. This is a great place to take kids and show them the various tools and lifestyle of farmers from different eras in time. The do charge a nominal admission fee to enter, I think its $7 for adults and $3 for children, but you might want to check and make sure. Note that I don't believe that they are open in the winter months. more

Owner Message

  • Agriculture touches the lives of every living person. The food we eat, the clothes we wear, the way of life that developed the values, economy, and culture of our nation all find root in agriculture. Yet, today, few people understand or appreciate agriculture as the dynamic and pervasive force that has shaped our nation's past and that will shape the world's future.<br><br>To awaken people to the importance of agriculture and to help them understand and appreciate its past, present and future, agribusiness leaders of the 1950's, in Kansas City and throughout the country, envisioned the creation of the nation's premier center for agriculture. To this end, the focus of the proposed institution would be the American farmer and farming and would include not only the rural heritage which has been so influential in shaping America, but also the science and technology of farming that are shaping our world of tomorrow.<br><br>The National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame, or the Ag Cent er as it is more commonly known, became a reality when it was issued a federal charter by an act of the 86th Congress and signed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower on August 31, 1960. This rare federal charter, an historic beginning the institution shares with organizations like the American Red Cross, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and the Future Farmers of America, charged the Ag Center to serve as the "national" museum of agriculture and a memorial to farming leaders.. * 172 Acre Complex <br>* Museum <br>* Hall of Fame <br>* Special Events <br>* Educational Programs<br><br>*Hours of Operation :<br>*Monday - Sat 9-5<br>*Sun 1-5<br>*March - Nov
