 Digital Valley Center Item of the Week ---

1887 Maps of the Communities of Coldwater, Protection, and Avilla, Comanche County, Kansas

Digital Valley Center was created to preserve, showcase and make available for public examination and enjoyment, historical photos and documents from the early days of Valley Center, Kansas, the Progressive Women’s Club, and the Valley Center Public Library.  The 1887 Official Atlas of the State of Kansas digitization project is undertaken in partnership with the City of Valley Center, the Friends of the Library, the South Central Kansas Library System, and a grant from Menocause: Ignite Valley Center. We will continue to add pages to our collection on Digital Valley Center.

Check back frequently to enjoy this look at Kansas in the late 1800s!  Find the website at:
