Catalog Record | Enlarge Image | Adopt a Book Home

Established in January of 1873, Chanute was a conglomeration of four smaller towns along the Neosho River in southern Kansas. This broadside from just after the merger announces the near completion of the Austin Bridge, a 160-foot span built with $15,000 raised by local investors. Won’t you consider adopting this broadside as a bridge to the past?
