Plan your three-day adventure across Kansas. You too, will say“I discovered the West.”
Historic US 36 is an adventure across Kansas!
Your 13 county adventure begins in Doniphan County -
cross over the Missouri River at St. Joseph, MO into Elwood, KS. Then drive westward to the yucca-studded, semi-arid high plains of western Kansas into Cheyenne County.
The only Kansas highway with four distinct geological regions.
American History abounds East to West
The Pony Express, operated from 1860 to 1861. It paralleled US 36 across northeast Kansas. From its home office in St. Joseph, MO to Marysville, KS then turned north & continued to Sacramento, CA.
US 36 is also the crossing point of the Oregon Trail.
Discover US 36 Hwy and find out why Abraham Lincoln made the
statement after visiting Elwood and Troy, Kansas in 1859:
- “If I went west, I think I’d go to Kansas.”
