"Oakley, Logan County, Kansas" Oakley by Stephen-KarenConn

Oakley Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 19 photos

Oakley, a progressive little city of 2,173 people (2000 census) is the county seat of Logan County. It is on the high plains of western Kansas at the crossroads of US-83, US-40 and I-70.

Most people who come to this area are only passing through. First were the nomadic American Indians, then pioneers came by covered wagon or stagecoach. The railroad followed, then roads, and finally the interstate highway. Many travelers today only make a pit stop at Oakley, if they stop at all, on their rush along the interstate, east or west, to larger population centers. Those who take time to pause and explore a bit will find many points of interest on this windswept prairie region that gave birth to the legend of Buffalo Bill.

    5-star account of Oakley. The Buffalo Bill bronze sculpture is remarkable. Also enjoyed information about the Survivor of the Plains Statue. But, I relished the beautiful photos and fascinating information about the "Chalk Pyramids".
