February 2021 Meeting
Tuesday, Feb. 2 at 9 a.m.
9 a.m. - J. Harvey Koehn will present Kansas Courthouses. His presentation will cover a selection of county courthouses across the state. The audience will see the court houses’ external features and architecture, some of the courtrooms, some of their interior designs and what the county has chosen to showcase, and some of the courthouse yard displays.
Koehn grew up in rural McPherson County. In 1973 he and his wife, Mary, relocated to Andover where he began a career in education, teaching high school chemistry and physics. He followed this up with a few years of teaching for Butler Community College and Wichita State University. After teaching for nearly 40 years he transitioned into full-time retirement. Koehn’s interests include reading, traveling, photography, continuing his long-time pursuit of railroad history, genealogy, church activities, spending time on the farmyard where he grew up, and last but not least, his family which includes his wife, two grown and married children, and six grandchildren.
