Highway 83 http://hppr.org en The Last Reminder of a Thriving Community http://hppr.org/post/last-reminder-thriving-community <p></p><p>A trip along the history trail that tells of the settling of the west is littered with the remains of hundreds of ghost towns.&nbsp; The lives of many of these settlements were very brief, as they boomed when they bet on the tracks of the railroads and then busted as they watched from a distance as the trains pass them by.&nbsp; One of the largest communities was called Ivanhoe, and was developed between the Arkansas and Cimarron Rivers on what is now U.S. Highway 83.&nbsp; Today we’ll visit what remains of this once-bustling community – the cemetery.</p> Wed, 30 Jan 2013 06:01:00 +0000 Skip Mancini 11476 at http://hppr.org The Last Reminder of a Thriving Community
