Kansas State Historical Marker
Wabaunsee County
      You are on the eastern edge of a Bluestem pasture region known as the Flint Hills. Extending past Junction City, this nutritious grazing area averages 60 miles in width, and reaches south into Oklahoma. For centuries buffalo in great numbers grazed its acres. Eventually they were succeeded by rangy Texas cattle. Texas shipped up the horns and we put the bodies under them, old Kansas cowmen used to say. Today the Flints Hills fatten more than a million fine cattle annually.
