(DODGE CITY, Kan.) — History will come to some Dodge City students as part of a new program from the Boot Hill Museum.
The museum is sending special traveling trunks to schools. The trunks are filled with items related to Dodge City's history and the culture of southwest Kansas.
Officials with Boot Hill Museum says the trunks will allow students to learn about the culture they come from and the history of where they are growing up.
"We have such a rich history and Dodge City is a nationally famous town," said Karen Pankratz, Curator and Exhibit Designer from the Boot Hill Museum. "We just want them to learn about their history".
One of the trunks focuses on Dodge City's history, another focuses on the cattle trade, which still plays an important role in the city's culture and economy.
