Help Bring Fairfax’s History to Life!
Fairfax has a long, colorful history that’s begging to be told. But, we need your help to bring the story to the people of Kansas City, Kansas and beyond!
As a part of the 100th anniversary celebration, the Wyandotte County Museum will be showcasing a special 100th Anniversary Fairfax exhibit that will run from July 5 – Sept. 24.
