Water, mammoths, Native Americans, Oregon Trail pioneers, electrical power, dams, floods, fishing, recreation. What does this describe? The Kaw River! See it all through artifacts, photos and stories in the newest exhibit at the Great Overland Station.
Before there was a state of Kansas, there was the Kaw - or Kansas - River, named by the Native Americans of the area. This exhibit is made possible by a grant from Freedom's Frontier National Heritage Area and showcases the significant role the river played in the development of our state.
