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.

Horse sale, Santa Fe, Haskell County, Kansas

Steele, F. M. (Francis Marion), 1866-1936

There was brisk trading in Santa Fe, Kansas, whenever a herd of sleek horses like these were offered for sale, as the pioneers were unaccustomed to the benefits of motorized farming, and even motor cars were a rarity. John Jacob Miller is shown facing the camera (sixth man from the right, dressed in a hat, tie, white shirt, and vest). Also visible in the photograph are the Haskell County courthouse, Cave's Store, and Frank McCoy Lands. Santa Fe was the first county seat of Haskell County, Kansas. In 1912, the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railroad built a line from Dodge City, Kansas, to Elkhart, Texas, that bypassed the town by seven miles. In 1920, the Haskell Country seat was moved to Sublette, which had prospered by being on the AT&SF rail line, and Santa Fe faded away into a ghost town.
