Historic Sacks Tell Kansas Story

KSAL StaffMarch 5, 2015

Eighty years ago – Salina was filled with flour mills that ground enough wheat to rank it as the the third largest flour producer in the world.

Colorful and distinctive flour sacks from hometown mills were everywhere.

Today those sacks, which are harder to find, will be the focus of a First Thursday program at the Smoky Hill Museum.

Historian and collector, Nancy Jo Leachman will share her knowledge and assortment of Kansas flour sacks she has found over the years.

Leachman joined in on the KSAL Morning News this week with an invitation for everyone to stop by the Museum on Thursday, March 5th at 5:30pm to learn more about “History On A Piece of Cloth.”
