The well was originally dug to serve the Beach Ranch at Cow Creek crossing, providing water for livestock as well as for travelers on the Santa Fe Trail. Sometime after 1860, William Mathewson - who was the original Buffalo Bill - purchased the ranch of Asahel and Abijah Beach.
Part of the museum is in the old Carnegie Library, with most of the displays in the newer, adjacent structure. This is one of the best small museums in Kansas.
To travelers on the Santa Fe Trail, this sandstone citadel marked the halfway point of the trail and was one of the most prominent landmarks on their long journey. American Indians were said to have met at Pawnee Rock and reputedly used it as a vantage point to spot bison herds and approaching wagon trains.
