On our adventure to Denmark, we encountered numerous abandoned homesteads. It’s sad to see this part of our history in ruins. I can only imagine what it would have been like out on the prairies of Kansas. I just received a book titled Sod and Stubble by John Ise. It’s about a young woman and her family homesteading near Downs, KS in the 1870’s. I looking forward to reading it. I’m sure there will be an adventure to that area when I finish the book!
These photos were taken around numerous places between here and there. Mostly there, in Post Rock Country.

I’ve come across numerous cellars and I have not ventured down into any of them. I really doubt if I ever go into one!
