Leavenworth locals are kept well aware of their shared history thanks to the efforts of the Leavenworth County Historical Society. For more than 50 years, the society has not only helped curate the history of the area, but also helped present Leavenworth's best face to visitors. The society is in the Carroll Mansion, a local house on the National Registry of Historic Places. The mansion functions as a museum with plenty of exhibits always there to present an interesting facet of Leavenworth's history. Visitors also enjoy the museum's Victorian Gift Shoppe, where anyone can find a perfect keepsake or gift.
