Each year, Old Cowtown Museum expands its collection via purchases and donations. Donations can come from all over. While most are local or area donations, Cowtown does receive donations nationwide.
Recently Cowtown received a donation of twelve cabinet card photographs from a donor in California. Since they are all Wichita photographers, the donor wanted them here at Cowtown.
The various photographers (with locations) included were:
Vogenitz, 106 N. Main
Sinclair, 209 S. Main
Rogers, 106 E. Douglas
Baldwin, 118 E. Douglas
Hardin, 204 E. Douglas
Cottage Gallery, 509 E. Douglas
Additions like these keep the museum collection fresh and growing. We welcome donations from early Wichita history and items from the 1870s. If you are interested in donating to Cowtown, please call me at 316-350-3321.
