This black and white photograph shows storefronts on the south side of Broad Street in Richland, Kansas. The town founded ,in 1854, was located in Monmouth Township along the Wakarusa River. 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 remainders of the town is the broken pavement which once covered the streets.
