|The Alegawaho Memorial Park includes ruins from the Kaw Nation's presence here.|
The road I was on went through the 168 acres of the Allegawaho Heritage Memorial Park which was dedicated by the Kaw Nation in 2002. The Kaw Nation requests that no approach closer than a walking trail that is there be made to the memorial as it is considered sacred ground.
I recall when I saw the monument that there was a round pavilion in the valley below on the opposite side of the road that was marked as a Kaw Nation site. Then the feeling that something special was here came over me and even more so when I saw the agency building's ruins. Now I know why that was.
Just thought I should set the record straight here on that, and my dedication to barns seemed to be a good place for this. Hope you enjoyed that bit of history and the barns I saw of note during my ride in Kansas this year.
