Have you checked out the updated Lost Kansas Communities archive at lostkscommunities.omeka.net?
We’ve added several Lost Town profiles this summer including:
- Walsburg, Riley County
- Murdock, Kingman County
- Holland, Dickinson County
- Buckeye, Dickinson County
- Clearfield, Douglas County
- Tipton, Mitchell County
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.
