In the 1920s, farmers were national heroes and cornhusking was the next great sporting spectacle. Explore the history of the Kansas State Cornhusking competition and learn how Oakley revived the sport after World War II.

The public is invited to a encore exhibit viewing during the Kansas State Cornhusking Contest. See vintage tractors and participate in fun activities such as corn toss, corn pile money dig, and pumpkin decorating.

The project is part of "Hometown Teams," a statewide initiative exploring the way sports build and unite communities.
