Can you believe that the early settlers made this small dugout a home for the entire family during the harsh Kansas winters? There is a small parking lot with a short trail back to the field where this dugout is located. A small stream flows near by and due to rains, there was water in the basement area of the... More

This site has a neat history, but it seems that there is no upkeep besides mowing the grounds. Great place to stop and it is so neat to think about the way this family lived.

No real care taken to preserver this old structure. Its old stone foundation blocks and filled with what blows in. Kids go there to drink on the weekends.

Researched the history and found it very interesting. Hard to believe that the family spent two winters in the dugout. It was difficult to find even with a map. We drove past it the first time around. Should be marked with an historical marker.

Finding it requires effort. The site is not marked. Take Highway K-4 west out of Lindsborg, at 12th Avenue turn north. About ¾ mile on the east side of the road is an “opening.” From this opening you access a grassy parking area that would probably accommodate about three cars. To find the dugout, follow the footpath through the pipe... More

This is just outside of Lindsborg, but you won't find it if you don't have directions. There is a "map" (sort of) in the visitors guide you can get in town but it is still one of those places you could drive past a million times and not realize it. It is on a dirt road and you have to... More

Before you go out there, get the Lindsborg visitor's pamphlet, (Its free and all over downtown) so you can see a map of how to get out there, and read the history of the place while you are looking at it. It is off the beaten path, and there are no signs, so you drive down a dirt road, and... More
