"Dominating Church Steeples Typical Among Towns" Park by mrclay2000
Park Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 4 photos
For those of you out there who love and pride themselves in Americana, you'll of course consider that little towns ought to have water towers. It is almost a litmus test these days, that to qualify for a village the place must have a water tower, to qualify for a town a McDonald's and to qualify for a city a Wal-mart (or some equivalent).
In rural Kansas, several towns along I-70 have the requisite water towers and other ornamentation besides. Some have grain silos to prove their agrarian heritage, but several villages/towns (such as Park) have a dominating church steeple almost as majestic as the silos. These structures prove that the religious aspect was no farther from village life than sewing and the scythe.
- Pros:Ornate churches easy to reach from Interstate
- In a nutshell:Why not stretch your legs before such an edifice rather than the rest stop?
If you're traveling on I-70 in western Kansas, stop by the villages of Victoria or Collyer or any of the other places... more travel advice
