From the fabled visit of the Spanish explorer Francisco Coronado to the present-day city situated on the banks of the Kansas (Kaw) River, the history of the growth of Bonner Springs is an interesting story. Indians, fur trappers, ferry operators, merchants, and resort promoters have contributed to make Bonner Springs the city that it is today. Images of America: Bonner Springs aims to present some of this history through the photographs of Urbin Rudell and others, exhibiting the community spirit and pride the town's forward-thinking citizens have shown since its founding.
