A Visit To Kansas City

2. This beautiful relict mill from the 19th century still stands as a testament to the industry of Kansas settlers. The Drinkwater & Schriver Flour Mill, built in 1875, is on the Cottonwood River in Cedar Point, Kansas, in Chase County.

3. The Walnut Grove School was established in 1878 in Olathe, Kansas, and in use as a school until 1951. Students living within miles of 116th Street and Pflumm in Olathe attended this one-room school. The original Walnut Grove School building was moved to its present location on the campus of Walnut Grove Elementary School, 11800 Pflumm, where it was restored.

4. In 1906, the Kansas Daughters of the Revolution placed Santa Fe Trail Marker Number 35 near Canton, Kansas. The Old Santa Fe Trail was the path across the states of Missouri, Kansas, Colorado and New Mexico. The DAR’s marking of the trail involved the placement of ninety-six granite stones across the 500-mile route in Kansas. The Colorado DAR placed additional markers along the trail in Colorado.

The Rosedale Arch was inspired by the Arc de Triomphe in Paris and was designed by John LeRoy Marshall, a Rosedale resident.
