Liberal’s Oz Connection One of State’s Eight Wonders

KSCB News - October 27, 2009 12:00 am

INMAN, Kan. (AP) – An organization that educates people about

Kansas has announced the results of its latest contest.

The Kansas Sampler Foundation says the “8 Wonders of Kansas

Customs” are things that are “uniquely Kansas.”

Winners include the state’s unusual fencing. In parts of Kansas

where trees are scarce, pioneers made buildings and fence posts out

of limestone. The foundation notes that there are fence posts at

the Post Rock museum in La Crosse and throughout the Smoky Hills in

the north-central part of the state.

The state’s “Wizard of Oz” connection also received notice.

The foundation mentioned attractions in Wamego and Liberal that

tell the story of the 1939 film classic.
