The Kingman County Historical Museum in Kingman Kansas occupies a beautiful 1888 building which served as a firehouse, jail, and city hall. The building has two towers, a bell tower over the city hall entrance and an unusual fire hose tower where the cotton hoses would hang after use so that the hoses would not mildew.
