A stop on the trail There is plenty of camping space in Russell Springs, "The Cow-Chip Capital of Kansas", (some areas have electrical hookups for campers) so plan to come and spend the weekend and visit our museum.

There's something here for everyone, both young and not so young, so please plan to attend. I will be posting more information as it becomes available. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at rfdhomer@windyplains.com.
