The Winfield Arts and Humanities Commission and the Cowley County Historical Society partnered recently and utilized a teaching trunk made available by the Kansas State Historical Society.

Students under the direction of Becky Waldorf and personnel at the Cowley County Historical Museum used the materials contained in the “Kansas Women and Their Quilts Traveling Trunk” to take part in hands-on learning activities. Kansas history was explored using quilts, antique objects, historical documents and photos to explore women’s roles and responsibilities in settling Kansas.

Classes were available for individuals of all ages. Elementary school students, as well as Cumbernauld residents, participated.
