The Friends of the Osage City Public Library and the Kansas Humanities Council are hosting a relaxing evening with M.J. Morgan as she presents “Lost Kansas Communities.”
Kansas has nearly 9,000 disappeared towns and communities, caused by its unusual and spectacularly fast settlement history. The variety of town types is as striking as the stories they left behind. Join M. J. Morgan as she shares some of the histories of failure and persistence against the odds. The challenges of researching lost communities will also be discussed. M. J. is a Kansas historian and research director at the Chapman Center for Rural Studies at Kansas State University.
The event will be held at the Osage City Public Library, 515 Main Street on Friday, October 3, 2014 at 6:00PM. Please join us for this free event.
