The Great American Cattle Drive September 2007

It was a treat to meet my blogger friend, Peg, over the weekend. She introduced us to her family and I felt I already knew them as would any of her faithful readers. We circled our wagon in her driveway. We’ll be back.

Ellsworth sponsored the Great American Cattle Drive as a fundraiser for their Drover’s Museum planned for the city’s signature building on main street. It shows forethought by city planners. Ellsworth has a colorful history of cattle drives and drovers who worked them. In addition, the city is a short distance south of I 70. I think it would be a tourist destination for families traveling through Kansas.


Ellsworth also has a cave*. As you see by the picture, two or three shops had a underground street. I am sure there are others beside me who are interested in the cave’s history. Was it protection from elements or a place for men to gather? Or, perhaps, an idea brought from European immigrants.
