Cancel for March 31: Arkansas Valley Town & Land Company

MAR  31  1900
A.  V.  T.  &  L.  Co.

The Arkansa Valley Town and Land Company was a part of the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad.  The company managed the land that the railroad controlled along its right of way, and developed and established many Kansas towns and communities.  The company is closely interwoven with the building of the state of Kansas.

The AT&SF Railroad Map shows how the railroad followed parts of the old Santa Fe trail and cut right through the State of Kansas.
