Pawnee Rock, Barton County, Kansas

Pawnee Rock, Barton County, Kansas
Date: August 21, 1930
This postcard shows a view of the stone pavilion and monument at Pawnee Rock in Barton County, Kansas. The site, located in the southwest corner of Barton County, is about 100 yards from the old Santa Fe trail. It is considered sacred ground for the Pawnee Indians who held tribal councils on its flat top. For pioneers passing through the area, the landmark was considered a half way point of their journey and many would engrave their names into the stone. In 1909 through the efforts of the Woman's Kansas Day Club, the remaining portion of Pawnee Rock became a historic site. On May 24, 1912 the stone monument was dedicated before a crowd of some eight thousand onlookers. The site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.

Women tired of worn out laws

Women tired of worn out laws
Date: January 30, 1913
This article from an unidentified newspaper describes how, shortly after gaining universal suffrage, Kansas women were eager to use their votes to benefit society. In particular it discusses the latest Women's Kansas Day Club meeting, which had the largest attendance on record. This club, which often met to discuss ways to preserve Kansas's heritage, now spent more time "look[ing] to the present and the future." While men's political meetings focused on parties and affiliations, these women focused on the "humanizing of society," including how they could use their votes to protect the home, reform state laws that treated women unjustly, and provide stronger educational opportunities for children. The article includes summaries of speeches by several leading Kansas women, as well as information about their work for preserving the history of Kansas.
