Ag Hall of Fame prepares for grand opening

May 7, 2009

The grand opening of the National Poultry Museum at the Agriculture Hall of Fame will be 10 a.m. Friday, May 8, at the museum site, 630 N. 126th St., Bonnet Springs.

The poultry museum is an endeavor 15 years in the making. The initial exhibits  were unveiled in 1994 with completion of a Hatchery Building within FarmTown USA — an early 1900's farm town constructed on the grounds of the center. Since 1994, the focus has been on raising the funds necessary for additional exhibits, gathering artifacts and determining how to tell the rich and intriguing story of poultry. Come explore the "Evolution of an Industry."

A light lunch will be served. Reservations are requested by e-mailing or calling (913) 721-1075.
