Souders Historical Farm Museum This is a private, historical museum located on the Souders farm one half mile west of Cheney. The Souders Historical Museum depicts what life was like in Cheney and rural Kansas in the late 1880s and early 1900s.

There are a number of buildings on the Farm, including a Main Street, several businesses, a school, a church, a homesteaders cabin, and train depots from both Cheney and neighboring Garden Plain. The buildings contain a variety of artifacts, historical photos and educational materials.

The pioneer chapel tells the story of early day churches with furnishings from the first churches. The little washhouse is equipped with the kitchen range and early day washing machines, and other household equipment. An original claim house, built as required for preempting a 160-acre farm under the Homestead Act, has been restored and equipped with appropriate furniture. The Dewey School was a one-room school located in Kingman County just a few miles west of Cheney, and was in operation from 1880 until 1944.
