|- Old Jefferson Town
- Bowstring Bridge
A collection of eight restored and furnished vintage buildings from different locations around the county. These include a church, blacksmith shop with tools, one-room schoolhouse complete with dunce cap, jail, windmill and working tank, and a museum and gallery.
Built in Cleveland, Ohio the bowstring bridge was originally located across Rock Creek, north of Meridian, in 1875. It is significant as a design of the time period, constructed by The King Bridge Manufactory which was important in Kansas for a short time. The bridge was moved in the 1950's to southeast of Valley Falls. In 1975, it was moved to Old Jefferson Town. The bridge, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, spans a small creek and provides a crossing to other points of interest at Old Jefferson Town.
