Pictured is the Harold Reser farm just west of Rossville, Kansas. From the July 12 Rossville Reporter: "Rossville and all the Kaw Valley from Junction City to Kansas City is covered with water that approaches the mark set in 1844. It is higher than the 1903 flood by far. For the first time in the knowledge of present inhabitants, Main Street south of the Union Pacific tracks and the highway was covered with water." This photograph is provided through a pilot project to host unique cultural heritage materials from local libraries on Kansas Memory and was accomplished by mutual agreement between the Northeast Kansas Library System, the Rossville Community Library, and the Kansas Historical Society.
