Welcome to Land of "Ahs!" -- KANSAS!

Getting off the "beaten track" in
Kansas can lead to a number of great destinations, a wealth of history, and a number of fascinating tales and legends.

 

From the wild and wooly cowtowns of Kansas to the "Bleeding Kansas" days prior to the Civil War, Native American legacies and the Overland Trails, Kansas is an exciting place for the history buff and features numerous museums and historical sites commemorating its heritage.

For those looking for scenery and wildlife, travelers will be happy to know that Kansas provides nine scenic byways, six nature reserves, and more than two dozen state parks.

While Kansas provides much more than the typical traveler might anticipate, Legends of Kansas focuses primarily on the state's rich history, its legends and tales, out of the way places, and every little nook and cranny that Kansans call home.  

Working with several  historic books, including: Kansas: A Cyclopedia of State History published in 1912; History of the State of Kansas, published in 1883, and Kansas, A Guide to the Sunflower State, written by authors of the Federal Writer's Project and published in 1939; we endeavor to provide both the history and the updates of these many locations. Much of the information will come directly from these books and many of the stories have already been published on our parent site, Legends of America.

Legends of Kansas; however, digs deeper than what we offer  on our larger site, providing yet more glimpses into Kansas' places, people, and history.

 

This will be a long-time "work-in-the-making," and we hope you will watch as we grow.
