A group of men gather in front of the Bunger Hotel in Alta Vista, Kansas for this photo taken in 1908-1909. On the reverse of the photo, Alta Vista barber, Bat Nelson writes, “Man in center with arm around pole, Dr. William Smith. In 1909 the Bunger advertised in the High School annual, Board and Room $1.00 per day. Man number 3 helped dig basement for brick building that burned down, basement was dug in 1911.” No other individuals in the photo are identified.
We appreciate everyone who made the Wamego Community Foundation Match Day a success. 72 separate gifts were received and we raised over $23,000! The funds are used toward the rehabilitation of the facade of the Farmers Union Coop building, also known as the annex.
