Cottonwood Falls, KS
Additional Information

The Stone Foundation invites you to attend the Flint Hills Stonework Symposium and Workshops, from April 30th to May 7th 2017 in Cottonwood Falls, Kansas. Cottonwood Falls lies at the heart of East-central Kansas' scenic Flint Hills. Hidden in these rolling grasslands are countless stories of Native American and pioneer history, rich cattle ranching culture, and limestone! The Flint Hills, so named by famous explorer Zebulon Pike, for the numerous chert or flint deposits eroded from limestone outcrops. The result of ancient sea beds, limestone outcrops and the flint have helped preserve the prairie landscape from the plow and progress. These limestone outcrops provided building material in a relatively treeless landscape. Post Civil War settlers, and European immigrants have left their mark here. Structures such as stone fences, bridges, cellars, barns, homes, city businesses and churches are evidence of the 1880's stone crafts. Countless tons of stone are still quarried today supplying the next generations of sculptors and masons with material to leave their own mark.
