About this Exploration:

Founded in 1868 by a group of Irish immigrant farmers, descendants of these early pioneers placed a kiosk at the top of Indian Hill just west of the Chapman village to remember those who risked all to come to Kansas and to settle in this place. A cemetery has now surrounded the site .Adjacent to the cemetery is also the recognized Butterfield Trail wagon ruts to the west.  Many Indian skirmishes took place on this bluff that overlooks the Smoky Hill River.  Wagon trains bringing families in to settle on this land in Dickinson County, and wagon trains leading people on farther west left remnants of their travels on this place.
