De Soto featured in museum
De Soto history is now being featured in the lobby of the Johnson County Musuem, 6305 Lackman Road in Shawnee. The display gives a brief history of De Soto that touches on the influence of James Abbott, the boom that came with the opening of the Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant and other events. The tricycle and other artifacts in the foreground were donated to the museum by the Daniel and Rose Osborne family. The display will be in place for another two to three weeks.
