This is a map drawn by Lena Strecker showing creeks, the Denver Trail, and the homesteaders of Grant Township, Township 14 South, Range 14 West in Russell County. Lena also compiled a list of "new owners" and "homesteaders" in the township. This is one of several maps drawn by school children for a contest organized by Judge J. C. Ruppenthal of Russell, Kansas. The maps were to meet a "requirement of presenting historical data, together with excellence and accuracy of drawing."
