About this Exploration:
In the early 1900's, residents of Kinsley unveiled their long
awaited memorial to Civil War veterans. Many communities across America had done the same, but the Kinsley experience was unique: the Kinsley monument was created by a local artist, David A Lester, himself a veteran and commander of the GAR post there.
At a time when most such monuments were mass produced in bronze or stone and purchased by mail order from foundries and quarries in the eastern United States, the Kinsley monument was created in the local community by a local artist using common and utilitarian material: cement. It is a homespun creation in 'high art' style."
The monument is located in the Hillside Cemetery. Go 2 1/4 miles west of Kinsley on 1st Street, then 1/2 mile north (1st is north of U.S. 183 and U.S. 56 junction). It is the tallest monument in the cemetery.
