Ever heard of Silkville or Oronoque, Kansas? These are two of the new additions to our student-researched Lost Town profiles you’ll find at

Check out these fresh-from-the-students Lost Town profiles (click the town name):

“We often talk about the ways these small town people laid a solid foundation for those who came after them. These hopeful settlers had not ‘failed’ because the town was no longer there. They had done exactly what they were meant to do; raise up a successful generation of folks who found their own lives and vocations.” (Dr. Lynn-Sherow)

You’re invited to pull up a chair and meet these Kansans who helped to grow the Wheat State and the people who call it home.
