Tonganoxie Community Historical Society

Tonganoxie was once home to the largest dairy farm in Kansas. The TCHS historical site is located on 10 acres of that original dairy. The buildings include: the Fairchild/Knox barn, a 1929 dairy barn with milk parlor and hay barn, silo, and working windmill; the Honey Valley School, a 1916 one room school house; the Reno Methodist Church, a 1918 church; and a 1936 Fire Pumper Truck.
