Chase County Courthouse
Oldest working courthouse in Kansas, built of native limestone in 1873.
Built 1872-1873, this French Renaissance native limestone building is the oldest working courthouse in the state of Kansas. During the decade following the Civil War, Chase County residents knew their county had outgrown its log cabin courthouse and makeshift jail. At a special election in August 1871, thirteen years after the county's formation and with a population of about 600, voters approved a $40,000 bond levy for a new courthouse and jail. Native limestone, used in the building, has also been shipped to every state in the country where it may be found in scores of famous public structures, including the Capitol building in Washington D.C. and the Topeka State Capitol building. Each year visitors from many states and foreign countries visit the Courthouse, marveling at its architectural design, the stonework, and the spiral staircase in the same way the pioneers did in 1873. In 1971 the Courthouse was entered in the National Registry of Historic Places and the Kansas Historical Site register. Unmatched in durability and design, the Courthouse remains a living tribute to its builders and the Flint Hills pioneers who dreamed of a Courthouse which would stand a century. Please call for more information.

Anthony 9-11 Memorial
Offical Kansas 9-11 Memorial is dedicated to the memory of those patriots who gave their lives during the tragedies in NYC, Washington D.C., and a field near Shanksville, PA, and to honor those left behind. The memorial is about ordinary people who met extraordinary challenges, working together to make a difference across our nation, and in the lives of one heroic firefighter's family. It tells the story of the connection between a small farming community of 2,300 people in south-central Kansas, fallen firefighter Joseph P. Spore, Jr. and his brothers at Engine 88, Ladder 38 FDNY, and Rescue 3. The Anthony 9-11 Memorial incorporates artifacts from all 3 sites of the attack on America. After observing, Mr. Shane Gentry, a WTC survivor from Shawnee, Kansas, poured dirt from the WTC site and dust from his clothes into the Memorial site at the groundbreaking ceremony. The memorial is erected with 3 pieces of steel from the WTC, limestone from the Pentagon, and dirt from the field of the crash site in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. There are bricks throughout the walkway of the memorial of fallen NYC firefighters, law enforcement officers, port authorities, and fire departments from across Kansas and the United States, and many individuals and their families from all over the United States. The story boards tell the history and terrifying story of 9-11. The memorial shows that something so horrific can unite our country as one, and show that we can be proud to be Americans.

Carriage Factory Art Gallery and Museum
Art Gallery regular special and featured exhibits; presentations, workshops, classes and programs.
A common desire to broaden the visual understanding and to stimulate the cultural interests of the people in the Newton area, prompted 27 individuals to establish the Newton Art Association in October of 1968. During the following years, Newton Fine Arts Association was instrumental in sponsoring a number of classes, workshops, demonstrations and shows, including the Kansas State Extension Classes, Watercolor USA at Bethel College, two Christmas Art Shows and the mobile gallery from the Wichita Art Museum. They held the first Newton Art Fair in 1974. The art festivals continued for the next four years until they combined efforts with the Newton Chamber of Commerce and the Newton Recreation Commission. This evolved into the Sand Creek Folk Life Festival. In 1980, the Newton Fine Arts Association filed for incorporation, as a non-profit corporation and received a 501(c)(3) tax exempt classification with the IRS. The name of the organization was changed to the Newton Fine Arts Association, Inc, in 1983. The Newton Fine Arts Association was responsible for purchasing The Skipper sculpture in the courtyard of our public library. In 1983 the Newton Fine Arts Association received a bequest from the estate of Elaine Suderman, a former public school art teacher. This money established a nucleus for growth. The Association established a gallery of its own and further expansion and renovation followed. The NFAA established the Carriage Factory Gallery at its present location in 1983. In September of 1993, Donald J. Voth, Senior VP and Chief Financial Officer of Railroad Savings and Loan, presented the deed for the building as a gift to the Newton Fine Arts Association.

Red Barn Studio
The Red Barn Studio was the working studio of professional artist and craftsman Lester Raymer (1907-1991). The Red Barn Studio is filled with Raymer’s art and handiwork, from paintings and prints to ceramics and metalwork, from woodcarving to stitchery, furniture and jewelry. His work is influenced by his love for the world’s great painters, especially the Spanish masters, the Southwest and Mexico, religious symbolism and folkart. Raymer considered painting and printmaking his most important work, which he studied at the Chicago Art Institute, but he worked in almost every medium. Each year he created a special Christmas gift for his wife, Ramona. These gifts included painted boxes, candlesticks, and other decorative items. In 1960 Lester began the tradition of making toys every Christmas for Ramona. He made 53 toys over a period of 30 years. Examples of these gifts and toys are on display at the Red Barn Studio. Much of Lester Raymer’s art and craftwork, including the Red Barn Studio, was made from recycled materials. Raymer took ordinary things, generally discarded mundane objects, and transformed them into beautiful works of art and crafts, gifts, toys and decorative elements for the studio. The Red Barn Studio was restored and opened as a museum to the public in September of 1997.
