Welcome to the Carroll Mansion...

Home of the Leavenworth County Historical Society, celebrating the 60th anniversary year since our founding!
2014 also marks fifty years of ownership of the historic Edward Carroll House, which we opened in 1965 as a Victorian home museum.
2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the Carroll House as a museum.

The Leavenworth County Historical Society, founded in 1954, Leavenworth's Centennial Year, owns and operates the Carroll Mansion, which is listed on the National Registry of Historic Properties and the oldest museum in Leavenworth County. The museum attracts visitors year round from all over the country, and serves not only as an institution that acquires and preserves the rich history of Leavenworth County, but also as an ambassador.


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.
