The Abandoned Ruins That Are Hidden In The Hills Of Kansas

The wide, open plains stretch as far as you can see, fading into grey mist and the light of the sky. The flint hills are always majestic, but did you know there’s something hidden in these hills? As gorgeous as we know the flint hills to be, there’s plenty of structures within it’s grasses that just aren’t used anymore. Old schoolhouses dot the landscape, but there’s also abandoned ruins made of stone that were left behind from long ago. Let’s explore!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

You can learn much, much more about these structures from Tom Parish at his website here. If you know of any cellars that aren’t on private property, and open to the public, let us know in the comments! Otherwise, make sure your touring of these cellars doesn’t get you in trouble. Always ask first!
