Keeper Of The Plains Plaza

At the meeting point of the Big and Little Arkansas rivers is a weathered steel statue by American Indian sculptor, Blackbear Bosin. The Keeper of the Plains was installed in 1974 to celebrate the nation's bicentennial. Standing tall at 44 feet (13.41 meters), it is set on a huge headland and is considered a sacred site by the Native American tribes. Encircling it is a plaza with many displays, describing the lives of local American Indians who dwelt here. There are walking bridges to access the area. Fire drums on bluffs at the foot of the sculpture light almost every night, giving a dramatic effect to its surroundings.

McCormick School Museum

Preserving the heritage and history of local public schools, the McCormick School Museum is housed within the handsome building of this 19th-century school. Visit the museum to see interesting displays like a one room school from 1890s, a science lab’s replica from 1923, old photos, yearbooks, and archives. Small yet well-maintained, you can visit the facility on Wednesdays and Sundays.

Operation Freedom Memorial

Located in the Veterans Memorial Park, the Operation Freedom Memorial honors the memory and sacrifices made by several soldiers of United States' Armed Forces who fought bravely and perished in terrorist attacks and combats. A tribute to the memory of 90 soldiers from Kansas who fell in Iraq and Afghanistan, the marble monument was completed in 2014.
