Preserving and sharing the history of Wabaunsee County, Kansas
‘DEPOT ESKRIDGE MAB 1890’
The Manhattan Alma and Burlingame Railroad depot at Eskridge is seen in this photo, circa 1890. As this depot is seen, it was originally 42 feet in length; in 1918 it was lengthened by 15 feet. Notice the stack of bricks which have arrived by train.
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.
