Come enjoy an afternoon exploring our museum site dedicated to agricultural equipment
Brown County Historical Society has two waystation gardens located at 301 East Iowa Street, Hiawatha, KS. One of the most graceful and beautiful creatures is the Monarch Butterflies. Did you know that Monarchs migrate each year to Mexico and Southern California and the reason for this is that the Monarchs cannot handle the harsh extremes of the cold winter seasons in the United States? When the Monarchs migrate, they will spend large amounts of time during the winter on the oyamel fir trees located in Mexico and Eucalyptus trees in the Southern California region. The name "Monarch" was derived in honor of King William III of England. The first reference to the Monarch was described in 1758 by Linnaeus.
Brown County Historical Society wants to express its warmest thanks to Anita Pfister, who has graciously offered her knowledge, support, guidance for the two Monarch Waystations created at the AG Museum.
