Howell and the Santa Fe Trail

The storyboard on the walkway north of the kiosk at the Howell rut site located west of Howell on Highway 50.

For the commemoration of the 200th anniversary of the Santa Fe Trail the Dodge City/Fort Dodge/Cimarron chapter of the Santa Fe Trail Association is spotlighting sites along the trail in Ford and Gray Counties.

This week we are highlighting the storyboard on the walkway north of the kiosk at the Howell rut site which is located west of Howell on Highway 50.

The storyboard shows the Santa Fe Trail tracks at the site as they looked in a photo from probably over 100 years ago.

It is entitled The "Worst Piece of Road." Please check out the web sites www.santafetrail.org and www.santafetrail200.org for information about the trail.

Also information about the Santa Fe Trail can be found on Facebook.
