Skyscrapers of the Plains

Visitors who have never before traveled through the plains of Kansas marvel at how flat much of the state is, and that they can see the next town (no matter how small) long before they arrive there. Most of these villages have two dominating features that are seen from a distance - the church steeple(s) and the grain elevator.

Such is the case with Danville, located in south central Kansas on Highway 160. The Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in the Saint Joan of Arc Parish is the spiritual life blood of Danville. In the background sits a farmers' co-op grain elevator, the economic life blood of the community.

Other than these two vital forces, it is lamentable to note that the rest of the town looks in danger of becoming a ghost town in the not-too-distant future.
