About this Exploration:

In the 1800's railroads played a most important part in settling the United States.  In 1850 the railroads sold land to settlers for farming and commerce. The first trains to come through Moundridge were the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe; Union Pacific and Missouri Pacific. During the first year, there were four trains a day for mail, freight and passengers also rode the trains.  The depot became its symbol and the center of activity. Through the introduction of motorized trucks and busses, the importance of trains faded and in 1986 the depot in Moundridge was moved to its present location.
