Eudora was founded by Germans in 1857. As a German community, Eudora residents were huge consumers of beer and alcohol. However, Kansas as a state was on the forefront of the temperance movement, eventually becoming the first state to prohibit alcohol consumption. This enforced abstinence clashed considerably with many German, Czech, Irish, Italian, etc. immigrants who had settled in across the state. Indeed, anti-foreign prejudice helped drive support for prohibition. In response, ethnic communities like Eudora frequently violated prohibition laws in an effort to preserve an important expression of cultural identity. The Eudora Community Museum plans to explore the history of immigration in 2018. In the Fall of 2018, we will host a special exhibit on the history of "Immigration in Douglas County."
