Council Grove Travel Guide: 37 reviews and 63 photos
This town is neat to go and visit for the sheer sake that it is so well preserved. It is a bit far from other things, but take a trip just for the sake that they have so many historically preserved buildings and are proud of what they have to offer that has not been diminished by progress. The town is proud of all the old elm trees and has designated a number on the tour sites to visits.
The town has a fair number of good old and preserved homes and places to take tours. The town itself is like a late 1800's to 1920's era. Quite and solitude are the specials for here. There are 28 places on the National Historic Register in town.
They have set up this and another at the other end of town structures on the horizon depicting the migration of the pioneer to go out west. This really was the last stop for many to go down Santa Fe Trail, or up the Oregon Trail.
