Hometown pride abounds in McPherson and is driven by individuals who are passionate about telling the community's story through attractions, entertainment and small-town hospitality. All Schools Day celebrates more than 100 years of education in McPherson County. The McPherson Museum highlights many community "firsts" including the creation of the first synthetic diamond and the first basketball team to win Olympic Gold. The McPherson Opera House offers seasonal shows with live entertainment. The benefit of McPherson's welcoming nature is visitors feel called to stay and discover more. Some even choose to call McPherson their home.
