You’ll Never Run Out Of Things To Do In This Tiny Kansas Town
“Though she be but little, she is fierce.” -William Shakespeare
Do you recognize the quote? Good, because today’s post is all about this famous Shakespeare sentiment. Or at least it’s
kind of about it… today’s post is actually about a Kansas town that is small (with a population of less than 1,000), but mighty in that you can always find something fun and exciting to do.
First settled in 1854 by an Indian trader and cattle rancher, Cottonwood Falls is one of the picturesque towns located in the heart of the Flint Hills.
One of the most recognizable spots in Cottonwood Falls is that of the Chase County Courthouse; a French Renaissance-style building built in 1873 (the same time that the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway reached the area).
Though the town may seem small (with a population of less than 1,000), it packs a huge punch in terms of things to do, including ample music events...
Pictured is Emma Chase Friday Night Music, which takes place every Friday night at 7:30 p.m.

, 201 Locust St.), you are sure to find something to love in Cottonwood Falls.
The Flint Hills National Scenic Byway runs 47 miles between Council Grove and Cassoday.
...and scenic outdoor opportunities.
