"From the ornate to the humble, railroad depots have served as centers of community activity and a link to the outside world. The depots' functions and architectural styles made them distinctive across the Kansas landscape. Their history in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries are the focus of "Kansas Depots". Author H. Roger Grant reminds us of the time when people and freight were dependent on rail transportation, when the depot was the bustling hub of the community, and when whistle stops, troop trains, and rail excursions brought the whole town out to look and wonder."
