Artists: Deb Firebaugh & Steve Joyce
The Dexter Helium Park commemorates this monumental discovery of helium in 1903. At the back of the park are the final remnants of the helium well.
The story of helium’s discovery in natural gas begins in May 1903. The town put on a daylong celebration of a local company’s discovery of a natural gas well, including the release of a stream of natural gas. The gas was supposed to explode and light up the sky when it came into contact with a hay bale set on fire above it. Instead, the natural gas extinguished the burning hay. Erasmus Haworth, a Kansas geology professor who was puzzled by the incident, sent a cylinder of the Dexter gas to the University of Kansas. On Dec. 7, 1905, Professor Hamilton Cady and Associate Professor David McFarland analyzed the sample and discovered that it was nearly 2 percent helium. The discovery of helium had a huge impact on the community for decades.

Yarbrough Farm, 388426 3rd Dr, Atlanta KS 67008

This barn, believed to be built around 1900, with a large hay loft, is still used today

Large beams and wide plank flooring cover the inside of the main structure. The walls were made to store items and the foundation was made with rocks from the local creek.
The Lee family owned the farm at the turn of the century after coming here from Lamar Missouri by covered wagon. In 1905 the brother of Mrs. Lee, Sidney Shelton of Greensburg KS, gave her 500 dollars to build the house which still stands on the property. Mr. Charley Whiteman built the house and his 11 year old daughter, Pearl, who helped her Dad "pound a thousand nails into the house" would later marry the Lee's son, William. While William served in the war in Best, France his daughter Jean Lee was born in 1913. As the Lee's continued to earn a living throughout the depression Jean married a local boy by the name of Warren Yarbrough. Jean and Warren made their home at the farm shortly after marriage and the Yarbrough Farm became a home of hard work, cherished memories, laughter and most of all, love for many generations.

Construction of the airport began a month later and included four asphalt runways with connecting taxiways, and a large parking ramp to accommodate hundreds of planes. The first class of cadets, 43-D, arrived on December 15, 1942.
The south end of the Air Field contained the maintenance hangar, engineering shops, supply rooms, dispensary, training department, paint storage, and fuel and oil facilities. The central area of the field housed the barracks, swimming pool, theater, chapel, beer hall, bowling alley, and reception room along with many other service facilities. At the furthest north-east end was the Air Field's Hospital Complex
The park now houses the industrial park, home to businesses such as GE Aviation, Columbia Elevators, Greif, Morton Bldgs.,Vector Technologies and Western Industries.

a straw loft that had chicken wire attached to the rafters and then filled with straw, serving as
insulation. Using the building for storage, Larry and Judy removed the straw loft, enduring
dirt and dust, as well as "other things" such as black snake skins. In 2015 Larry decided to
turn this building in to his shop so he could work on his antique tractor restoration projects.
Larry did extensive work on the building, including installing new windows.
This old building getting new live provided a place for Judy to display her new sunflower block.

near by the farm, it took 3 years to complete the barn in 1945. In 1949 a
tornado ripped through taking off the top and it was rebuilt. Another storm in
1969, a 100 mph straight wind destroyed the hay storage part of the barn and the
barn was rebuilt again. Another barn was built to accommodate a bulk tank and
milking parlor in 1960. At this time Harlan came home from college to go in to
partnership with his father. Chester retired in 1974 and Harlan continued
milking in this barn until 1993.

The hayloft was used to store alfalfa and straw, but a basketball game or two was played in that hayloft too! A couple of cows continued to be milked in his barn. And when Kenneth's family was in 4-H, the 4-H steers were housed in the barn as well. During lambing season, the sheep that were about to lamb were kept in the barn. Each night before bed, the Ebert boys could be found in the barn making sure baby lambs arrived safely. The farm received the century farm award in 2005. Kenneth and Dorothy Ebert's children inherited the farm in 2008, and it remains in the family today.

Limestone rock is the bottom and Cyprus wood is the top and we covered it with tin as we wanted to preserve the barn as the wood was deteriorating. My great granddad and granddad built the barn with horses.
I helped my dad put hay up in the barn back in the 60's. My great grandparents lived in a cellar until another house was built in which the cows and hogs lived on the bottom while they built the house we live in now. It has 1907 on it. It is 2 story, all limestone with a full size attic built on solid rock. The horse barn has 1898 on it all limestone. My grandma and grandpa Richter finished the house.

Cedar Lane Farm, Craig and Renae Hansen, 4448 S. E. 105th St., Berryton KS 66409
According to Renae, "My parents, John and Linda Grame, bought the farm in 1967 from the Hills.
We purchased it from my mother in 2012. The barn has four stalls in it that were used for milk cows and hay was put up in the hayloft. some of the existing equipment for putting the hay up is still in the barn. My father used it as a farrowing house for his hog operation for a while. My husband and I have created stairs to the loft and added an extensive lighting system and cleaned it out really nicely. We have been using it for family gatherings and my husband uses it to create wooden bowls on a laythe. The original building is made out of wood. The support beams are tree trunks and at least part of the wood came from an old box car."
Renae adds, "I originally chose this pattern because I thought it was striking and also I have a passion for renewable energy and I thought the square with in the Square looked a little bit like an old-fashioned Dutch windmill. Additionally the lines going from point to point looks like a cross and they were symbols of our family Christian heritage in the Lutheran Church. We chose purple and white as prominent colors because of our K State alumni status. We also chose the forest green because lining the driveway of the farm are large old cedar trees. My father named the farm Cedar Lane Farm back in the 60's when my parents purchased it. The two brown or tan colors I chose because they blended well with the barn.
