About this Exploration:

Standing in the center of the town square, the Barton County Courthouse is a fine example of Modern (Classical) Eclecticism.  Designed by W.E. Hulse & Co., Hutchinson, the building was completed in 1918.  Every year there is a Christmas celebration that begins with a parade ending at the courthouse area and afterwards there is the mayor's Christmas tree lighting. There is also a skating rink located between the courthouse and bandstand every year.
The public can see inside of the courthouse, Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m.  Notice the beautiful marble flooring and stairs.

The Kansas Quilt Walk surrounds the courthouse square and helps tell the story of early pioneers on the Santa Fe Trail.
