About this Exploration:




The Post Rock Limestone Courtyard, located behind the three 1897 native limestone Grassroots Art Center buildings, speaks eloquently of the resilient pioneers who were undaunted by the absence of trees. They learned to quarry the abundant native stone for fences, barns, bridges, homes, churches, water towers, and hitching posts which have stood for more than a hundred and forty years.


This 10-inch layer of buff colored native stone is indigenous to only 17 counties in north central Kansas. The exhibit emphasizes the architectural, historical and cultural value of post rock limestone and incorporates at one place a concise and concentrated series of examples of construction and design detail, showing the many uses of the stone from the most utilitarian to the ornate and whimsical.


Open May-September, Monday-Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sunday 1-5 p.m.; October-April, Monday and Thursday-Saturday 10 a.m.-12 and 1-4 p.m.; Sunday 1-4 p.m.
