Kansas History and Heritage Project- Washington County Illustrations
Washington County Illustrations Farms and Residences "Portrait and Biographical Album of Washington, Clay and Riley Counties, Kansas," 1890.
These illustrations appeared in the book above, which called them "lithographic engravings." They may be a little idealized (no outhouses, clotheslines or manure piles in sight) but they are well-done, with plenty of detail and probably give a pretty good idea of how these farms appeared circa 1889-1890. Please click on each name to see the illustration.
