This black and white photograph shows a view of a rail road sign for Zeandale, Kansas. The town founded in 1855 was located in Riley County eight miles east of Manhattan, Kansas, in the Deep Creek Valley area and along the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railroad. The name Zeandale is a combination of the Greek word "Zea" meaning corn and the English word "dale". Together, they mean corn-dale or corn valley. The town's name suggested by one of it's early settlers Josiah H. Pillsbury, was a reflection of the rich soil and bumper crops grown in the area.
