This limestone house, home to early pioneers Timothy and Bridget Kyne, was built in 1885 by Timothy.  Among the featured pieces are a pie safe and table that were also built by Timothy.

Two additions provide more display space, and the one-room Topsy School is also in the museum complex.

The Kyne House, owned & operated by the Lincoln County Historical Society, is listed on the Kansas Registry of Historic Places.
