Roadside turnout, east end of Republican River bridge in Scandia
      Long before white men settled Kansas this region was the home of Pawnee Indians. French traders in the late 1700s named those along this river the Republican Pawnee inthe mistaken belief that their form of goernment ws a republic. From them the Republican River and in turn Republic County and city took their names.
