This aerial view shows Richland, Kansas. The town was founded, 1854, in the Monmouth Township along the Wakarusa River in Shawnee County. In the late 1960's and early 1970's, Richland was abandoned when the Army Corps of Engineers acquired land in the area for the flood plain of Clinton Lake in nearby Douglas County. Today, the only visible reminders of the town is broken pavement which once covered the town's streets.
