    This marker depicts a poor farmer named Abel Secrest who was shot trying to prevent the Confederates from stealing his mules. He saved his mules but lost his life.

    In the park on Bridge street all 12 of the black marble plaques are set in to one large scene. The marble etchings were done by Bob Cross, an art teacher from nearby Chanute.

    Pretty far off of the beaten path is this rock set in cement. It marks the spot where Walter Johnson was born on the family farm about 3 miles from Humboldt. Walter Johnson was more than just a baseball player. He was a baseball legend.

    This is not a great photo. It is the Walter Johnson athletic field where you might see local athletes playing ball in warmer weather.
