County #8: Barber

Medicine Lodge is the county seat of Barber County and the home of famous prohibition icon Carry Nation.  On our way into Medicine Lodge, I turned on the Criminal podcast (episode 73) so the boys could hear the history of Carry Nation and her smashing adventures.  The boys were transfixed and couldn’t wait to see her home!

The main city park is located next to the Medicine Lodge Pow Wow dance arena/circle.  It was so neat to see the set up, but we wish we could have come during their annual Peace Treaty Powwow, which is usually held in late September.

The city park was clean and fun, with both new equipment and classic stuff.  The boys loved the “triangle dome of awesomeness!”

Since we visited on a holiday, the Carrie Nation Home museum was closed.  We definitely plan to come back when we can spend more time.  Hopefully it’ll be during their powwow next year!
