The idea for creating a mural for downtown Abilene began in February 2006 as a project to honor the 25th Anniversary of the Arts Council of Dickinson County.

Home of 34th President

Original location of President Eisenhower's home, where he grew up. Also a Winner of the Original 8 Wonders of Kansas!!

Lebold Mansion

Abilene is home to two Winners of the 8 Wonders of Kansas Architecture. Both homes were built after the Chisholm Trail had moved on to Ellsworth, KS. They both have very unique architecture, one is Georgian style and the other is a Victorian style.

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 artifacts from the 1904 World's Fair that was in St. Louis!
