These first days of the new school year can feel like eternity as we find our pace.

It’s not.

Updated: Lost Kansas Communities Archive

KIC Image 0003Have you checked out the updated Lost Kansas Communities archive at lostkscommunities.omeka.net?

We’ve added several Lost Town profiles this summer including:

and more!

You’ll meet the people who cast their hearts into the Kansas wind, plowed the soil, worked the cattle, taught, served, doctored, and represented their fellow prairie pioneers.

They lived and worked in sod houses, lean tos, limestone, and clapboard homes and wove the traditions of their homelands into what is now Kansas.

We invite you into the stories of people and place as researched and written by undergraduate students of the Chapman Center for Rural Studies.
