Places to Visit   Old stone building in downtown Cambridge, Kansas.  Photo by Susan Howell.
The old school buildings in the north part of town are still maintained and used for comunity functions.

There is a nice small old bank building on the south side of highway US 160 at the main corner; notice the handmade stone column.

There's a well done mural called "The Count" on the east side of the Stockmans Cafe.

Don't miss the old stone public toilets beside the highway.  Fine workmanship for a humble purpose.
