North Newton Things to Do
I thought the Kauffman Museum was great. I've used a lot of pictures of it here on this page so you can see more about it. The museum is about Mennonite history and natural history of the prairie.
There is a small restored prairie in front of the museum building. Around the side of the building is a path that goes to a big old barn and a farm house.Related to:

North Newton Restaurants
Picked up this snack from the gift shop of the Kauffman Museum.
I liked the bbq flavor best. There were also cheddar cheese and a spiced variety.
Favorite Dish: Larvets. They are exactly what they look like, seasoned insect larva. Taste better than they look.
North Newton Transportation
Best way to get to North Newton is by car on highways I-135 or US-50. These antique cars can be found at the Kauffman Museum.
North Newton Local Customs
Mennonites from Europe were the original founders of North Newton. They came from places like Germany and Russia to seek religious freedom. Once they were established they sent mission workers to other cultures around the world. You will find diverse collections of artifacts those mission workers sent home in the Kauffman Museum.
North Newton Off The Beaten Path
Isn't that a great old barn. I have always liked old barns. Hate it when I see one falling in from lack of care. Makes me glad to see a barn like this one cared for.
The 'Campus Granary' is on the Bethel College Campus. In photo it is the plain looking building just past the carved wooden figure. It looks a bit like a barn. It is a place to see wheat weaving and craft demonstrations. Call 283-3940 to find out when there will be a demonstration.
