Ordering ice cream treats at the soda fountain.

HAVE A TREAT AT A KANSAS SODA FOUNTAIN! 1 of 8 Winners & Finalists in Abilene In the first half of the 20th-century, most KS towns claimed at least one soda fountain. At the start of the 21st century, we had about 48. Now, in 2009, we are down to 38 operating fountains.

Riding a carousel is great fun, thanks to C.W. Parker!

C.W. Parker got his start in Abilene! The C. W. Parker carousel tells another part of Abilene's history. Charles Wallace Parker's family moved to Abilene, KS when Parker was 5yrs old.

See a real racing greyhound!

Come to Abilene and check out an 8 Wonders of Kansas Customs Finalist.
