Product Information

These books are packed with images and stories about the history this area.  They are perfect for research or just a good read.  

Early Saline County was a land rich in Native American history. Only a few settlers migrated to the area prior to the railroad development that started in 1867. Milling and grains, livestock, and even gypsum mining all influenced the growth of Saline County. Salina became a prominent city, whereas Hedville and other towns were altered, almost lost, as the railroads continued to build and change their depots, creating boom and bust economies in the county. Tornados, fires, droughts, and floods challenged the hardy souls who called this area home. Salina and the towns that have survived the booms and busts have a robust history.

About the Author:

Dustin Ray Shannon, a Kansas native, works on cemetery preservation and extinct Kansas towns.

Faith Dincolo, MFA, is a filmmaker and writer who researches and writes about Kansas history and genealogy. Her family was one of the first settlers in Kansas and has cemeteries on the Chisholm Trail. The images are from the collections of the Salina Public Library Kansas research room, Tom Holmquist, Dustin Shannon, and Faith Dincolo.
