Motoring Monday: Keystone Gallery


Tucked away between Lake Scott State Park and Monument Rocks in Gove County, the Keystone Gallery is a combination museum, art gallery and gift shop.

The museum section features an extensive collection of local Kansas fossils including a 20-foot Mosasaur and a 14-foot Xiphactinus along with many other fish, turtle and bird fossils. Scenic photographs and murals are also on display.

The gallery is surrounded by a herd of 300 buffalo that are sometimes nearby or can be spotted along the Smoky Hill River valley.

Keystone was a church from 1917 to 1953, but had been abandoned until the gallery opened in 1991. Find out more about the gallery here.
