J.P. Wiser’s expansive cattle ranch, located in southern Wabaunsee County was managed by Wiser’s son, Harlow Wiser. In this view, from around 1900, a team of railroad surveyors are visible in the foreground. Notice that the windmill which sat atop the barn had been removed by this time.

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.
