K-2, Harper County
Roadside turnout, 6 miles northeast of Harper
      Two miles northeast of here, in 1890, stood a typical English village. Curving driveways led to English-style houses set among rows of clipped hedges. Nearby were polo grounds, a steeplechase course, a racetrack, tennis courts and a football field. Red-coated hunters rode to hounds across the buffalo-grass prairie. Farms and orchards were modeled after English estates and on the townsite a three-story hotel and other businesses were established.
