Westbound on Route 66:
Baxter Springs – First Cow Town in Kansas
The short ribbon of Route 66 through Kansas is the shortest of any state at just 13.2 miles. But, don’t for a moment, discount this brief journey, as in these few short miles, there is more of the Route 66 experience than any other dozen miles on the Mother Road. This brief stretch of the road also provides a peek at Civil War history, the Old West, and the mining days of the tri-state area.
Enjoy your brief journey through the Sunflower State.
