QUINDARO

DICK RISTOW


The pictures were taken in 1953. We were on a photo jaunt through Wyandotte County at the time, taking pics of the fall foliage. I lived within 6 blocks of it and used to play cops and robbers there when I was quite younger in age. I was there about 15 years ago and there was nothing left of the place except a few stones. All else had disappeared. The foundations were still visible. Quindaro Twp. was one of the slave hiding and dispersal sites in the slave railroad coming into free territory. The Wyandotte County Museum used to have a lot of data on the site. They are located at 112 th and State ave. K.C.K.
