Title

Hochfeld, Marion County

Description

The village of Hochfeld, located in the Menno Township of Marion County, Kansas, was settled in 1874 by German Mennonites on land purchased from the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad Company. Attracted by military exemption laws and new opportunities in Kansas, the larger Alexanderwohl Community brought traditions such as land partibility to a new home in the Cottonwood Valley. This study includes an interview, analysis of early maps of the county, census research, and etchings of Hochfeld in Marion County, Kansas.
