Established with a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Lost Kansas Communities is an innovative digital project that saves the memory of Kansas’s lost and disappearing locales and a major program of the Chapman Center for Rural Studies at Kansas State University. KSU students—more than 500 at last count—perform primary research, combing archives, creating maps, and documenting oral histories. Only the best of their final products make it to the project’s digital archive, where the stories are publicly accessible to any who are interested in Kansas history or rural studies.
