The Chapman Center for Rural Studies was founded in 2008 with a gift from Kansas State University alum, Mark Chapman. Mr. Chapman’s family farm was located in Broughton Kansas, which was condemned by the Army Corps of Engineers in the 1960s. The Chapman Center works to reclaim the histories of lost towns, rural peoples and places before it is too late.
