Postcard From Fort Larned National Historic Site, Kansas

Fort Larned National Historic Site near Larned, Kansas

Interesting history to this fort, which was established in 1859 and whose role consisted of guarding the transport of the US Mail as well as general traffic along the Santa Fe Trail.

The best part for us was that we spent over an hour at the fort and the only other person we saw was the caretaker, who we saw only from a distance.  A very quiet and peaceful experience!

Postcard From Norton, Kansas

An extremely rare 3-photo postcard! 🙂

Norton, Kansas boasts three vintage gas stations that have been repurposed for other uses.  It was on my list of stops last year but we didn’t get there.  This year we made a point of stopping by.  Very cool!
