High Plains Museum
We are the people of Western Kansas, descendants of the Native American, the soldier, homesteader, the farmer, the railroader, the teacher, and the entrepreneur. Our stories, beginning over 100 years ago, continue and are presented and preserved through the efforts of the High Plains Museum.
Located at 202 West 13th in Goodland, Kansas, is an excellent example of a type of Victorian architecture usually called the Queen Anne style. Built during a time of early prosperity in 1907 by the widow of William Ennis, this two story house with covered porches has been an important part of Sherman County history for almost a century.
