In ancient times the middle of North America was under a shallow ocean. Post Rock Country, in central Kansas, was built from one single nine inch thick layer of hardened ocean floor sediment, or limestone. This layer, only three feet beneath the surface, does not allow tree roots to grow, so lumber was scarce. The only building material available to the early settlers was that one layer of limestone. Homesteading laws required fences to be built around most ranches and an industry was born. The Kansas Fenceposts, or Post Rocks, as they are called locally, are a cultural marvel.
Please watch the Post Rock Country slideshow in the Travel Section.
