The History Behind This Western Town In Kansas Is Truly Fascinating

Here in Kansas, we’re all about our history as part of the large movement west as well as our part in changing slavery through Bleeding Kansas and other events. Small towns pepper the Kansas landscape like well, pepper, but there’s one that sticks out as the most uniquely created among them all. This specific western town in Kansas wasn’t created like any of our other towns. Have you ever heard of this unique historical place before?
