This is the barn at the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve. It is built of the native lime stone just like all the other ranch buildings. There are two ramps going to the upper floors and the barn is so big a wagon and team of horses can drive into the upper story with ease. (I love old barns.)

On highway 50 east of strong city is this sign. It explains about the prairie grass lands of the area. On many highways in Kansas there are signs like this at points of historical interest.

This is the chicken coop of the Z-Bar ranch. It is the sturdiest chicken coop I have ever seen. You can see it and other lime stone buildings at the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve.
