Eight interactive kiosks show and tell the history of Ottawa. All kiosks are packed with old photos that you can compare to the actual buildings that still stand. You can start anywhere, for each kiosk tells the story of a block. If you park at the Old Depot Museum’s parking lot and start there, you’ll learn about the building’s beginnings and view photos of it from 1888 on. You’ll learn about Santa Fe Annie and the trains that brought news, salesmen, and visitors to town. Further on, you’ll learn about the legend of the Marais des Cygnes River, stories of the major floods, and the river ford that crossed just east of the bridge. At First and Main Streets you’ll learn about the laundry boiler that became airborne and launched itself across the street, killing a passersby. A couple blocks down, the magnificent Franklin County Courthouse fits into the traditional architecture by local architect George P. Washburn. You’ll learn about his other fourteen courthouses–where they are, when they were built, and if they have survived. At the south end of downtown you’ll learn about the schools at Fifth and Main Streets, and the story of the 1880 Tinnon case.
