Title

Camp Pliley, Pottersburg, and Ash Grove, Lincoln County

Subject

Author describes a vanishing landscape in Lincoln County, Kansas.

Description

The lost communities of Camp Pliley, Pottersburg and Ash Grove, Kansas were settled by Civil War Veterans, Scandinavian immigrants as well as homesteading pioneers. While Pottersburg and Ash Grove locations achieved railroad service, the automobile caused the communities to shrink, one room schools and businesses to close as well as the rural churches to dissolve. The study will look at census records, newspaper articles, early history as well as maps for the camp and the townships.
