More than 100 people gathered Sunday afternoon for a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Cowley County Historical Society’s moving into the former Bryant Elementary School in Winfield. Here the group listens to a performance by the Winfield Municipal Band, which played at the moving-in celebration 50 years ago. Local historian Roland Mueller and museum director Shawn Stover spoke on the history and progress of the museum. Friends of the Museum served punch and cake, gave away copies of the March 14, 1901, Supplemental Edition of The Winfield Courier and provided information on ordering the new county history book and writing one’s history for the book.
