Cimarron Heritage Center


The dust bowl photos and other mem- orabilia from the era are impressive at the Cimarron Heritage Center. The center recently brought in a Dust Bowl house and plans to have the dedication with a Depression supper on Thursday, April 14, 2016. April 14 is significant as the date of Black Sunday during the Dust Bowl. The center is large with the Cox house designed by Bruce Goff that has an addi- tional building on the back and six out- buildings including a schoolhouse, a train depot, a machinery building with tractors, and more. Museum director Jody Risley said, “We have a very extensive military exhibit with a flag that was sent back over here [to the United States] from Belgium in World War II. It’s just the way it was torn down, it’s never been washed or any- thing. It still has the shrapnel, the blood, the mud and everything. People come in


and say ‘I’ve got a better looking flag than that.’ Yes, there are better looking flags but they don’t have the story.”


Kenton Museum


The cast iron waffle maker sitting on an antique stovetop has the best story in the Kenton Museum. Asa Jones, a museum board member who is married to the museum’s coordi- nator Fannie Jones, told the following with good humor, “I’ve got to tell you about my waffle iron. Right after my wife and I were married, she wanted a waffle iron. I was at a sale one day and I bought that darned thing for a quarter and she wanted to have both me and it thrown out. She said, ‘I wanted an electric waffle iron.’ Well here a while back an old boy offered me $250 for that and she said, ‘You sell that and I will throw you out.’” And that is one of the reasons it is part of the Kenton Museum.
