Iuka, Kansas: The History of Pratt County’s Longest Surviving Town

Description

The western Kansas town of Iuka survives today as a small farm community with a COOP. It was established as an early Pratt County settlement in 1877 by Reverend Andrew Axline. The town thrived until the county boundaries changed and it lost its bid for the county seat to the new centrally located settlement of Pratt. The town of Saratoga also competing for the county seat withered and vanished.
