Did You Know...


In 1848 Prudence Crandall moved from Canterbury to Illinois where she farmed land owned by her father and taught school. In 1877 she moved to Elk Falls, Kansas, where she resided until her death in 1890. She is buried in the Elk Falls cemetery (green box in above map). This hand-colored lithograph map was published in 1887. Friends purchased a copy of this map and donated it to the Museum.
