Discover the Unique Historical and Geographical Wonders of Midway USA

In 1939, Kansas state’s own Edwards County became famous when its roadsign made the cover of The Saturday Evening Post and was nicknamed “Midway USA”. From the date of its publication, the location was recognized as the halfway point that stood at an equal distance from the East Coast state of New York and the West Coast state of San Francisco.


A Rich Tapestry of Historic Events

Edwards County has a winding history that spans the momentous triumphs and catastrophes from our establishment up to the present day. Our books chronicle the events of the First and Second World War, Dust Bowl Era, and Tractorcade, otherwise known as the American Agriculture Movement.
