If you're heading towards Adamsville the sign is on 64 where it intersects with Lawton Road; however, Lawton Road has two intersections with 64 so if you're on 64 keep driving and you'll see it. The brick/stone memorial is at the historic marker site too.[Rose, 11/29/2016]

Take a free tour of the 1800s restored brewery, see the world famous Clydesdale Horses (if they are there), sample the beer, and grab a bite to eat or some beer swag. During the Christmas season they have lights, and there is a free event which is kind of like an old time Christmas, with all sorts of things for kids and adults to do.[Dan, 11/29/2016]
The Kansas State Hospital used to be known as the state insane asylum. The old building is vacant with many broken windows and maybe even a cemetery of deceased patients that we stumbled upon.[Rose, 11/29/2016]
346 headstones are in the cemetery, which are easy to count because nearly all of them are inscribed with only big numbers, not names. Patients were buried in the cemetery from the 1860s to the 1950s.
