    The map illustrates towns, railroad stations, county seats, rivers, creeks and townships of Bourbon, Crawford and Cherokee counties in Kansas.

    It's 1880 or earlier...The Arcadia-Coalvale, KS. branch was built 1877 & the Arcadia, KS.-MO.state line main was built 1880...What's really interesting is Litchfield is named Carbon, never seen that before...Roger

    Very weird to see a map that doesnt have the line going on down to Springfield, the MP going south towards Joplin and the KCS.
