Only six of the Kansas towns that applied to host “The Way We Worked” succeeded in their bids. But the Kansas Humanities Council awarded grants to some other towns to create related exhibits in their own communities, including Eudora and Ottawa.
l “Eudora’s African-American History,” depicting how the work of African-Americans shaped the community, is on display at the Eudora Community Museum, 1428 Elm St. (the old Nottingham Elementary School) in Eudora. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and it will be on display indefinitely.
l “Workin’ on the Railroads,” depicting railroad workers including Mexican-American section gangs, opens Saturday at the Old Depot Museum, 135 W. Tecumseh St. in Ottawa. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, and the exhibit will be up through May 5.
