Map and timetable of the Kansas City, Lawrence and Southern Kansas Railroad line from Kansas City to Harper, Kansas. The route included branches to Lawrence, Burlington, Coffeyville, and Hunnewell. The company advertised itself as "passing through the great wheat belts of the Neosho and Arkansas Valleys to the grazing and cattle fields of south-western Kansas and Indian Territory." The company encouraged settlement along 150 miles of the Oklahoma border with descriptions of the soil and climate for those emigrating to southern Kansas.
