Cowley County Celebrates Sesquicentennial

Filed in Cowley First News | Home | Visit Cowley County Comments Off on Cowley County Celebrates Sesquicentennial

Cowley County is celebrating its 150th birthday throughout 2017. Cowley County was officially organized sesquicentennial_logoand named Hunter County in March 1867 and encompassed a larger territory reserved for the Osage Indians.

The county was soon renamed for Matthew Cowley, first lieutenant in Company I of the 9th Kansas Cavalry, and the boundaries changed to present day Cowley County. The first brave settlers came to stake their claims along pristine waterways and among the rolling Flint Hills when the county opened for settlement in 1870.

To mark the county’s sesquicentennial, a traveling display highlighting Cowley County communities, historical events and local folklore will be on display at summer and fall festivals and community events for the public to view.

The final location is Cowley County Historical Society Museum, 1011 Mansfield St, Winfield from November 18 through December 30. The display will be available for public viewing during the museum’s normal operating hours, Tuesday through Sunday from 1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.

Questions regarding the Cowley County Sesquicentennial events and activities, contact the county administrators office (620) 221-5402; (620) 441-4502 or Cowley First (620) 221-9951; (620) 442-3094 or email cowleyfirst@cowleycounty.org.

HISTORICAL FOX STONE ARCH BRIDGE CLOSED

Filed in Home Comments Off on HISTORICAL FOX STONE ARCH BRIDGE CLOSED

Sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning, the stone arch bridge north of Cambridge, known as “Fox Bridge”, collapsed due to damage sustained during the recent flooding in Eastern Cowley County. Massive amounts of rainfall on Thursday hit that part of Cowley County causing flooding of several waterways including Grouse Creek. While flood waters had begun to recede over the weekend, Fox Bridge had been structurally weakened due to the creek cresting over the bridge and heavy currents slamming against it.

Unfortunately it succumbed to the brute force. The remaining two stone arch bridges north of Cambridge, (the Neer and Fromm bridges), are closed due to the roadways being heavily washed out by the flooding waters and will remain closed until road crews can complete the necessary repairs. Pudden Bridge, the triple arch bridge south of Dexter, also sustained some structural damage. It is currently closed and will remain closed until inspection of the bridge is completed and it is deemed safe to reopen to the public.  While we hope and believe the remaining century old stone arch bridges will be here for another hundred years, there are times when nature proves to be stronger than man-made structures.

Fox Bridge, built in 1910 was located on 62nd Road just east of 281st Road (Cowley 7).
