Kansas Historic Landmark Needs Repairs

KSAL StaffAugust 19, 2014

A historic and picturesque landmark in central Kansas is in need of some renovation and repair.

The Coronado Heights site near Lindsborg is considered one of the state’s most scenic locations. The sandstone formation’s natural platform has been used by generations as a scenic overlook and place to picnic.

The Wichita Eagle reports the Smoky Valley Historical Association says the landmark is sagging and deteriorating, although it is not considered dangerous. The group, which owns and manages the site, is hosting a capital campaign to raise money for renovating the park.

The group received a $90,000 matching grant from the Kansas Heritage Trust Fund. But it needs more than $57,000 for its share of the work, and another $65,000 for roadwork and drainage repair.
