Fort Hays--fort Dodge Trail

Kansas State Historical Marker
Rush County
      Established in 1867, the Fort Hays--Fort Dodge Trail, which passed near this spot, was first used by the military and some civilian traffic in 1868. The following year Alexander Harvey, a former member of the Sixth Cavalry, built a trading post on the trail on the north bank of Walnut Creek near here, and provided a place to ford the creek.
