Council Grove, Kansas.




The bikes are standing on the right side of street about even with where the wagon is coming down the street which is part of the Santa Fe Trail.

Seth M. Hays, grandson of Daniel Boone, arrived in Council Grove in 1847. In 1857 he opened the Hays House Tavern and restaurant, making it the oldest continuously operating restaurant west of the Mississippi River. Its cusomers have included Jessie James and Goerge Armstrong Custer. They have Great food.

That is the guy that got in a little bit of hot water with the land owner. Digging with out permission, I also heard, but not sure if it is fact, that he was selling artifacts he found. It really makes the kids think when we go down there that the soldiers are only about 3 feet down at the grave site. No marker except for a piece of re-bar I have put there.

A few more...

The Nevadaville City Hall in 1933, decades after the mines closed down and the miners moved out...


I think it is better shape today...


Rangely in NW Colorado in the 40's...


Rangely today...


When the last residents of St. Elmo rode out (literally) on the last train before the line closed, the abandoned buildings were left on their own. In 1930, a few decades after the place became a ghost town...


After another 80 years, some occasional care has helped them withstand the elements...

NMT... Well, thank-you very much, and enjoy it very much.

And as a matter of fact, I found and paused at the old Florissant Grange today. The school in 1884, with notably, a couple of two wheeled enthusiasts...


And today, 3/6/12...

sb... Striking how county courthouses back often stood out like fortresses in a barren land. The couple I've taken here are less imposing, but still sent a kind of intimidation message.

Elbert County Courthouse in Kiowa, Colorado in 1910...


Today...


Routt County Courthouse in Steamboat Springs, Colorado in 1923...


Today...

My gramps took this one in the early 1930s.








Another of his pics. The old wood pipe was still intact along the canyon bottom.
