Dexter Helium Park, 109 N Main, Dexter KS 67038
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.
GPS Coordinates: 37.17 9721, - 96.71 6903

16 barn quilts have been added to the Dexter Helium Park forming a mini-trail

This barn, believed to be built around 1900, with a large hay loft, is still used today
as a place where an orphan calf can be kept or a place for cows to seek shelter.
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.

First Baptist Church, 200 East 11th, Winfield KS 67156
Artists: First Baptist Church Members
This facility made of pure white magnitia (magnesia) limestone and silverdale
limestone, has always been a church.
This First Baptist Church was founded in November of 1870 at a different location. Reverend Winfield Scott was invited to preach by the Andrews, Millington, Hickok and Tousey families. They had told him of the new country and of the possible naming of the new town after him, and that they expected it would be the county seat. Rev. Scott made a proposition to raise money for a Baptist church in Winfield. While here he preached every evening and hunted deer in the day time. At the close of his time preaching here, a church was organized with twelve members. $400 was secured, which was increased to about $700, sufficient to build a stone building. The town was named Winfield in his honor. Within the next decade the church had outgrown its original building and construction of the current building at 200 East 11th was started. Its cornerstone was set in 1880. The educational wing was added in 1958. First Baptist Church has a rich heritage and history. We would love to share in worship and ministry with you.
