Sunday Jaunt - April 10, 2011, Somewhere Between Luray & Lucas Kansas

Oncoming eye strain made it clear that it was time to get away from the computer.  Temperatures in the mid-70s made it clear that it was time to drive somewhere.  Thus it started out being a jaunt to discover just where the Fairview Cemetery was located southwest of Lucas.  Then it became a jaunt to see if I could find the former site of the Pospect Church halfway between Luray and Lucas.  Then there was this native rock barn, and then this native rock farmstead, and in an hour's time I had these photos:

 Gravesite marked with stone posts & chain, Fairview Cemetery.

 Grave of James E. Hall, Fairview Cemetery.

 The remains of just four grave sites are all that now can be found in the Fairview Cemetery.

 Classic Post Rock Limestone square barn.

 Classic Post Rock Limestone farmstead.

 Classic Post Rock Limestone fencepost.

The stone posts go on and on and on and . . . .
(This one is for my California cousin, Tim Ruth, who like most people was fascinated with the stone fenceposts!)
