Morland: Railroad Helps Small Town with a Desire to Succeed Morland, Graham County, Kansas 1881-1892

Description

Morland was first known as Fremont, it was named after General John C. Fremont who was the noted explorer.
The people of Morland fought hard for their survival and in the end it paid off. Just the thought that a railroad could be coming gave people that little faith they needed to continue. New businesses started and old businesses lasted. The railroad was the life support they needed to last 129 years.
The railroad was discontinued in 1998 and businesses slowly began to die off, but the town has not fallen off the map.
