KS - Hiawatha - Area Attractions

"All of us have peculiarities."

That's how a pastor defended the memorial built by John Milburn Davis for his wife, Sarah. The Depression Era extravagance was reviled by his neighbors and heirs, who thought they needed the money much more than the statuary artists. 80 Years later it's the only tourist attraction of significance in this little town of just over 3,000 residents. Find the monument at the Mt Hope Cemetery, on East Iowa Street, east of US-73, US-159.

There are also two museums in town; the Brown County Museum at 611 Utah Street is open 10 AM to 3 PM Monday through Friday, or weekends by appointment, and there is the Agriculture Museum at 301 E Iowa Street that is open 10 AM to 4 PM on weekdays.

If you want a spot to stop and take a contemplative rest in a public area try the Korthanke Memorial Fountain. It's on the 400 block of Oregon Street, between police and fire department buildings.
