The Hathaway/Kern Family and the Quivira Chapter of the Santa Fe Trail Association will dedicate the Plum Buttes Massacre Memorial at Ralph’s Ruts near Chase Kansas on Sunday, Sept. 26.
Franz Huning was one of many traders hauling merchandise over the Santa Fe Trail in the 1860's. His home was in Albuquerque, New Mexico. On this particular trip in 1867, he was to bringing his mother-in-law, Martha Franke and her youngest son, Fritz to Albuquerque. On their way, tragedy struck near the Plum Buttes.
Join us for the dedication of the memorial and the story of this event as part of the Quivira Chapter activities to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Santa Fe Trail.

Before the Chase Fest last Saturday sister Paula Bieberle along with Gene Haas stopped by the High School to put some bars on the In Memory Plaque. Of course I had to use the loo and was surprised to see this on the stall doors. I asked Gene if the Men's room was the same way and he confirmed so i went in and took photos there too. Love them.

So this happened in Chaseamerica the first week or so of
April. It was posted on facebook and some of the comments
that speculated as to what it used to be are these: That is the Joe Adams (snow cone) home. Dr. Wallace had an office there also, The old Adams building. Joe Adams had a plumbing shop there and they lived in the back, I think at one time he had a shoe repair shop. I remember him sitting out on those stairs in the evenings, They used to sell fireworks out of there, it was originally a meat market. The house was added in the 50's and it was the oldest building in town. It was made of Chase bricks, which were very soft bricks and they were made at a plant down by where Farley's is now. So what do you remember about this building? email me and I will add those comments to this post. Sad to see any building in Chase gone.
I thought this was interesting, anyone remember
Article says she might have been from Chase.
Here is a photo that I took before it was moved.
