Soda Fountains of Kansas–1 PM–Swan Room

Museum Open House and Lunch from 11 to 1.  For freewill donation come eat lunch with the folks, visit the “Streets of La Cygne” displays, then at 1 PM head across the street to the library to learn about Soda Fountains in Kansas!

Soda Fountains in Kansas
During the glory days of the soda fountain, Kansas pharmacists created tonics and curatives that evolved into refreshments like the Brown Cow, the Mudslide, and Don’t Care. Mineral springs, World War I luxury taxes, and bottled soda pop played a role in these ice cream concoctions that became a profitable sideline business. The presentation will explore soda fountains in Kansas today and the revival of soda fountains throughout the nation. Presented by Cindy Higgins.
Cindy is a journalist and Kansas historian.  Sponsored by the historical society.
