Post Rock Museum - Information supplied by John Park, author of the book, A Guidebook to Mining In America: Volume 1: West (The Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and farther West), by John R. Park, Stonerose Publishing Co., Miami, Florida, April, 2000, available at Stonerose Publishing Company. (The following quotation is used with John R. Park's permission.)
"Locally-quarried limestone fence posts, strung with barbed wife, have been uniquely characteristic of the area since the 1870s. Such post-rocks were installed until about 1930 and many are still in use. Typical stone posts are 9. by 9. by 5. to 6. tall. Even when the Greenhorn limestone is used for other purposes (i.e., as a dimension building stone) it is locally called post-rock. The Greenhorn Limestone outcrops in the Smokey Hills region, an area 200-miles long by 10 to 40-miles wide. Other post-rock sites include the KS-4 Vonada Stone Company and KS-8 1874 Stone house on Mulberry Hill. The basic site brochure, The Post Rock Museum, contains considerable additional information about the geology and history of post rock in Kansas. The Hays Chamber of Commerce (913) 628-8202 has a driving tour brochure of local churches, many built of post rock in the late-1800s."
