Eskridge is a city in Wabaunsee County that mainly attracts visitors to the nearby Lake Wabaunsee. The scenery surrounding these two places is absolutely breathtaking. The road to get there is actually on a scenic byway known as Native Stone, and is well worth the drive!
During World War II, Lake Wabaunsee served as both a training ground for American soldiers and a POW camp for captured axis soldiers. The lake served as an excellent facility to boost the troops swimming abilities and physical endurance. The surrounding farmland is where most of the POWs worked until the camp closed in 1945.
