Welcome to the Carroll Mansion Museum, home of the Leavenworth County Historical Society

Founded in 1954, the Society has served the community for over 60 years. 2015 marked the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Carroll House as a museum.

It is listed on the National Historic Register and is the oldest continuously operating museum in Leavenworth County. It is here the rich history and heritage of Leavenworth County is collected, preserved, and shared. The museum attracts visitors year round from all over the world and offers an experience of not only stepping back in time to the Victorian era in Leavenworth but learning some local history.


Miss Everhard


The Miss Everhard
Glass Plate
Negative Collection

A collection of nearly 30,000 glass plate negatives depicting a century of Leavenworth history in portraits was purchased in 1997 by LCHS from the
Autry Museum of Western Heritage in Los Angeles, California and returned to Leavenworth.

Since most of the collection is identified by name, the researcher of Leavenworth or Family History may discover a portrait not previously known.
