Mulvane Historical Society
The Mulvane Historical Museum, housed in the former Mulvane Santa Fe Depot, was dedicated and opened August 19, 1983. The Mulvane Historical Society was Chartered July 11, 1973. The Depot was built in 1910. By the early 1970’s, the depot was used only by railroad repair crews as it was no longer serving passengers. In October 1981, the railroad agreed to sell the depot and lease the land to the Historical Society ending years of negotiations. The museum houses many photographs portraying life in Mulvane throughout its history. It also is home to many displays of collections and treasured pieces of Mulvane, Kansas, history.
During the year, we help support and host various community events throughout the year, along with the Mulvane Chamber of Commerce and the Mulvane Community Foundation: Easter Egg Hunt, Ice Cream Social, Old Settlers Days, Halloween Treat Night, and the Downtown Christmas Holiday Celebration.
One can join the Mulvane Historical Society. The cost is $5.00 for each annual membership or $50.00 for a lifetime membership. Our meetings are held the second Monday of each month at 6 p.m. at the Mulvane Santa Fe Depot. Your service and your ideas are welcomed.
