Street scene, new Ulysses, Grant County, Kansas

This is a photograph of a Saturday afternoon street scene in "new" Ulysses, Grant County, Kansas. All trading was done every Saturday and people stayed in town all day long. On February 6, 1909, the town was moved from its original location to escape payment of $35,000 in bonds plus $10,000 interest for waterworks and other improvements. The indebtedness was greater than the assessed valuation of the property.

Patrick Real Estate office, left, was later moved to Satanta, Kansas. In the background, behind the S. E. Cave building, is the original Haskell County Courthouse building.

In 1920, the county seat was moved to Sublette, Kansas, which had prospered by being on the Santa Fe railroad line, and Santa Fe faded away into a ghost town.
