Features and projects
Township Maps of Sedgwick County, Kansas: Interactive
web site featuring some of the earliest township maps of Sedgwick
County: government survey maps from the United States General
Land Office surveys, chiefly dating from the 1860s; and plat maps
and other information from the Historical Atlas of Sedgwick County,
Kansas, published by John P. Edwards in 1882.
Kansas Maps: Over 325 digitized Kansas maps, dating
from 1556 to 1900, are presented for interactive study.
Trails: Western Trails brings together archives, historical
societies, libraries and museums from Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska and
Wyoming in a collaborative digitization project. Our contribution
will be digitized 19th century travel guides and James R. Mead's Towanda
trading post records.
Photo Archives: Collaborative project of WSU Libraries,
Department of Special Collections, the Wichita Public Library Local
History Section and the Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum
to present images of Wichita online.
Notes: Dr. Edward N. Tihen read and took notes from
nearly every issue of Wichita's newspapers dating from 1872 to 1982.
The transcribed and searchable "Tihen Notes," as they have
become known, reflect the people, places and events that have shaped
Wichita's over 130-year history.
