Attractions and Recreation

Cloud county has many historic museums and sites to visit. Here are a few you don’t want to miss. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Brown Grand Theatre, known as the “Exquisite Gem of the Prairie” is located in Concordia and has staged performances for 104 years. Camp Concordia was a German POW camp that once housed more than 4,000 World War II German prisoners.

Between 1854 and 1929 an estimated 200,000 orphaned, abandoned and homeless children were placed out during, what is known today as, the Orphan Train Movement. The National Orphan Train Complex Museum and research center are dedicated to the preservation of the stories and artifacts of those who were part of the movement.

For those that prefer the outdoors, Jamestown Wildlife Area is a collection of historical wetlands and associated uplands located along a major migration route of the Central Flyway.  Bird watchers and hunters from throughout the United States come to Jamestown for a wonderful experience of nature. Meridian Way Wind Farm, located south of Aurora, is one of the largest wind farms located in Kansas with an electricity generation capacity of 201 megawatts. Located in Concordia, Whole Wall Mural is the longest sculpted brick mural located in the United States and the largest piece of public art in Kansas. Tootleville, located in Miltonvale, is a park that has a one-of-a-kind playground area and features a historic band shell, built in the 1930s.
