Presented by M.J. Morgan

Kansas has nearly 9000 disappeared towns and communities, caused by its unusual and spectacularly fast settlement history. The variety of town types--from colony and end-of-line towns to cumulative and rural communities--is as striking as the stories they left behind. Kansas towns are diverse and contain vital human histories of failure and persistence against the odds. This talk will explore research conducted on lost Kansas places and discuss problems of recovery of information.
