Southern Stage Route
A major U.S. Highway that runs through Western Kansas began as a rough trail that connected various boomtowns who were waiting for the railroads that ultimately passed them by. Today we’ll travel in a classic coach on the Southern Stage Line and head south out of Garden City, stopping for a bite of lunch and then an overnight stay by the Cimarron River.
Don’t worry about getting sidetracked and delayed, because we’ll be carrying the daily mail, and as the U.S. Post Office says, “The mail must go through!”
