Subject

The Fiery History of Hiattville
Bourbon County, Kansas 1870-1986

Description

This brief history of Hiattville uncovers its struggles to recover from a series of devastating fires, especially the fires of 1905 and 1913. Although a promising railroad town in Bourbon County in 1890s, by the 1920s, Hiattville was in a long, slow decline. This study relies on a county history, historical maps, and many newspaper articles.
