  1. Going Home: Hidden Histories of the Flint Hills

    September 24, 2016 - January 8, 2017 @ Flint Hills Discovery Center

    Laura Ingalls Wilder once said, "Home is the nicest word there is." However, what if your town or home is no longer there? Explore hidden places in the Flint Hills and tell us all about what 'Going Home' means to you. There will be many interactives within the exhibit, including a map to help located lost town in the Flint Hills, iPad stations with stories of communities, a place for visitors to record their memories, a children’s area and more. This exhibition represents the work of undergraduate students over the past several years working with faculty in the Chapman Center for Rural Studies at KSU, and made possible by an estate gift from Mr. Mark Chapman. The stories, images, sounds and even the exhibit films were written, discovered and shot by an amazing and talented group of young scholars who care deeply about the Flint Hills.
