Shawnee Town 1929 is a living history museum that tells the story of life in a small farm town that was Shawnee in the 1920s. From March through October visitors can stroll through buildings and grounds featuring a farmstead, barber shop, typewriter repair shop, grocery store and funeral home & cabinet maker with new building planned for the near future. Costumed interpreters bring the era to life through a variety of programs and activities during special events and school group visits.
