Subject

The Rise and Fall of Catholic Liebenthal:
A Look at Religious Significance in Rush County, Kansas
1874-Present

Description

Jacob Herrman founded the land in Rush County, Kansas that came to be known as Liebenthal.
The village of Liebenthal still stands today as the proud religious community ithas always been, but it has gotten considerably smaller. It is most likely that the town has
remained because its main street is U.S. Highway 183. This road is one of the more frequently traveled U.S. Highways, as it runs from Canada to Mexico.
