Scott City Hopes to Preserve Native Pueblos

SCOTT CITY, Kan. (AP) — A committee has been formed to help preserve and develop Lake Scott State Park in western Kansas.

The Hutchinson News reports that Gov. Sam Brownback and and the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism Secretary Robin Jennison announced the formation of the Scott State Park Historic Preservation and Development Committee earlier this week.

The remains of the northernmost Native American pueblo are a defining feature of the park, which is located north of Scott City.

Authorities say that funding challenges have constrained efforts to preserve and interpret the site. One of the goals of the committee will be to raise funds to build an interpretive center over the ruins to help preserve them.
