Subject

A Persevering Community: Waco, Sedgwick County, Kansas 1870 – 1905

Description

This study examines the town of Waco, in Salem Township, Sedgwick County, Kansas. It was classified as a town between the dates of 1870 and 1905, but it continues to survive as a community to this day. The town declined due to restricted access to key services, like a bank or railroad, and was unable to compete with the city of Wichita. The included material is based on a variety of sources including photographs, newspapers, and historical accounts.
