The 1880's in Manhattan were a pivotal time of both building and bust. Riley County Historical Museum staff will explore life in Manhattan during this Victorian period, using the Wolf House Museum and the collections of the Riley County Historical Society and Museum as illustration. Join us as we take a look back at our 1880's community through food, fashion, families, politics, pastimes, buildings and work.
