McCormick School Museum

Wichita’s McCormick School building, designed by architects Proudfoot and Bird, is the oldest school building in Wichita. It’s now a museum that showcases the history of Wichita Public Schools.

The McCormick School was built in 1890 and was the seventeenth elementary school in the Wichita Public School system.

Tours of the McCormick School Museum are available by appointment on Sunday afternoons and Wednesday mornings. If you would like a tour, call Paul Oberg at  (316) 841-6198. He’s a very nice guy and a wealth of information about the school!

Admission is free but donations are accepted and are a great way to keep this treasure around for a long time!

There’s a great set of pictures on Flickr here if you want to check it out before your visit, and we have a few here we took during a recent visit.
