One of the first things you will see as you approach Fredonia from either direction on Highway 400 is the 40 x 60 foot American Flag greeting travelers from a 100 foot flagpole atop Fredonia's South Mound. The flag is the centerpiece of a charming park maintained by the Fredonia Lion's Club.
Having a big sale, on-site celebrity, or other event? Be sure to announce it so everybody knows and gets excited about it.
Located on the east side of the Fredonia square, the museum is housed in the former Wilson County Jail and Sheriff's residence built in 1915. The museum houses an eclectic collection of early pioneer artifacts, period clothing, Indian artifacts, and even mastadon bones. It also houses an extensive genealogy section.
Located on the north side of the square, the clock tower was erected in the 1960s to house the clockworks that were saved by local resident Gus Charlen when the 1886 courthouse was demolished. View the enormous antique clockworks through the windows and watch as the paddles and gears turn as it chimes on the hour.
Just south of the southwest corner of the square is the Stone House Gallery. Built in 1872, this State of Kansas Historic Site is the oldest house in Fredonia, built just four years after the town was founded. The Stone House is the home to the Fredonia Arts Council and features monthly exhibits from local, area, and regional artists.
