Then and Now
As with most growing cities -- and especially with cities which grew up with the wild west mentality -- much of Wichita's past has been lost to "modernization."
Starting with the January 1999 issue of the Historic Guardian, we are starting a new feature, "Then and Now." Those of you who have enjoyed HPA member Mary Manlove's slide presentation, "Lost Wichita," will see similarities. We owe her credit for the
concept and thank her for her gracious permission to adapt her presentation.
We will compare ghost historical buildings or sites with what occupies the site today.
