The Finney County Historical Society will examine evidence of Native American tribes on the southwest Kansas plains Tuesday as part of its Evening at the Museum lecture series that will run monthly through November.
The lecture will begin at 7 p.m. in the meeting room of the Finney County Historical Museum, 403 S. Fourth St., and the museum will provide drinks and dessert. Guests are welcome to bring dinner.
The event’s speaker, Chad Myers, a Kalvesta native and Finney County Sheriff’s Office deputy, is an archaeology enthusiast and has discovered and studied many artifacts on his own and through the Kansas Archaeology Society. Recently, he studied the historical society’s collection of over 300 stone points.
The series’ programs run from August through November and January through April. The series will continue on Oct. 16 with a lesson on discerning history through old photographs and on Nov. 10, with Humanities Kansas’ presentation of a new film about walking across Kansas.
