The Baxter Springs Heritage Center & Museum, functioning under the Baxter Springs Historical Society, is dedicated to preserving and interpreting the rich regional history of Baxter Springs, Kansas.
The holdings of the Sandzén Archives illuminate Birger Sandzén's art, his life and times; the Swedish immigrant experience over several generations; and such specific cultural history as American and European reactions to the political situation in Europe in the 1930s. These holdings will interest not only artists and art historians but also, among others, cultural historians and family sociologists.
