In this photograph Dorothy "Dottye" Bogue Holt, born in 1925, stands in front of the Bodarc General Store building, which closed in 1951. Bodarc, also known as Bois d'Arc, was unofficially founded in 1875 in Butler County, and is now considered one of Kansas' "lost communities." Dorothy Holt moved from Douglass to a farm near Bodarc in 1931. Her four stories about growing up there in the 1930s are titled "One Fourth Of July (1933)"; "The Farewell Party (1930)"; "Riding The Bay (1933)"; and "A New School Start [1931]." Holt died in 2014 in Topeka, Kansas.
