Travel Tips for Junction City
The Geary County History...
The Geary County History Museum is on the corner of 6th and Adams in the old highschool building. There are many fine displays in the building. The 'Main Street' gallery contains examples of early 1900's businesses. The museum is only open from 1:00p.m.-4:00p.m. and closed all day on Mondays.
The Buffalo Soldier Memorial...
The Buffalo Soldier Memorial is at the corner of 18th and Buffalo Soldier Drive. For my friends in foreign countries Buffalo Soldier was a nickname given to the soldiers of the 9th and 10th horse cavalry regiments. The soldiers were all African American black men. At the US Cavalry Museum you will learn that these men were given inferior equipment and yet they had fewer incidences of desertion and less discipline problems than the white soldiers did.

As you approach Junction City Kansas on I-70 from Topeka one of the first sights you will see is the "atomic cannon" high on a hill near exit 301. It is 42' long. You can climb the hill to take a closer look and to stretch your legs. I am glad to say that this cannon was never used and never will be.
Junction City has strong economic and historical ties to nearby Fort Riley. Fort Riley is over 100,000 acres in size and is home to more than 10,000 soldiers. I do not wish to glorify war in any way but a visit to this area is not complete with out a visit to the military post.
