This original one-room school house at Old Abilene Town in Kansas dates from 1874 and was moved to the old town site and rebuilt.
Just off I-70, Old Abilene Town is located next to an old railroad depot. On the weekends you can take a scenic train ride, a stagecoach ride, and witness a re-enactment of a gunfight on main street.
Old Abilene Town is within walking distance of the Eisenhower Center where you can tour the Dwight D. Eisenhower birth place, Presidential Museum and Library, and see the final resting place of Dwight and Mamie Eisenhower and their son, Doud.
Also nearby is the Museum of Independent Telephony. For one price you can visit this amazing museum dedicated to the history of all things telephone-related “and” see the fully-operational C.W. Parker Carousel built in 1901.
