This town of only about 1,700 will surprise you with it’s fun boutiques, nice restaurants and a mercantile refurbished to replicate how things looked in the area well over 100 years ago.
History buffs can make several stops, including one that commemorates the last Native American raid across Kansas in 1878. It was a band of Cheyenne led by Chief Dull Knife, breaking from the squalid conditions of a reservation in Oklahoma in the fall of 1878. Along the way they had many fights
with the U.S. Calvary and settlers as they tried to get to their homeland in the Dakota Black Hills and surrounding plains in 1878. Nearly 20 Decatur County settlers were killed in the battles and raids before the Cheyenne crossed into Nebraska.
