Contact: Abby Amick

Discover the natural beauty of the panoramic Native Stone Scenic Byway. Seen in everything from hillsides to courthouses, these amazing natural limestone formations and stonework used in architecture can be found along Hwy. K-4 and Hwy. K-99 in the Mission Creek and Mill Creek valleys, as well as through the stunning Flint Hills in Shawnee and Wabaunsee counties. Limestone is the bedrock on which much of Kansas rests, and this stone has been the building block of many historical buildings and the source of countless natural landmarks. The Native Stone Scenic Byway highlights both the natural wonder of rock formations and the amazing craftwork of masons who built the small towns and communities with native stone Highlights along the 48-mile Natural Stone Scenic Byway include: *1878 Sage Inn and Stagecoach Station – Stop by this charming, 130-year-old bed and breakfast made from native limestone in Dover. *1905 Henry Sump Barn – This magnificent redwood and limestone barn is a slice of Americana; located just south of Alma. *Wabaunsee County Courthouse – This iconic stone structure is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. *Alma Creamery – Tour this 50-year-old company to see how handcrafted cheese makes its way from the farm to the dinner table. *Wabaunsee County Historical Museum – Visit this museum to learn more about prairie life in the Flint Hills. *Lake Wabaunsee – Take time on your trip to relax, picnic, boat, swim or golf at this lovely lake.
