The Solomon Valley, along with US Highway 24, stretches from the high plains of western Kansas, eastward through north central region of the state, following the path of its namesake, the Solomon River.

   

The 24 communities, all with a common agricultural heritage, yet each with a unique personality collaborate to interpret, preserve and promote their shared heritage.

  

Each community has a kiosk (View Kiosk Locations)

providing local information that all explorers might sample the community's 8 rural cultural elements.  as defined by the Kansas Sampler Foundation a means to "See Kansas With New Eyes."
  

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful citizens can change the world.  Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

The common threads that weave our communities together:

  • The Solomon River - along which the first settlers in this area made their homes
     

  • Highway 24 - which provides the vital transportation link between the communities
     

  • An agricultural heritage - from which all of these communities have sprung

While each town's original settlers' ancestry may have been different, whether German, French, English or African, they all had to find ways to survive, thrive and celebrate life in the Solomon Valley.  Each community along the valley has its own story to tell.
