Kansas has more than 6,000 dead towns. Here are a few of them I traveled to as a Hutchinson News journalist.

Midway, Kansas a little spot in Harper County and many others.
There were at least 10 Midways in Kansas, typically the midpoint between one place and another. Here's a sign erected in June 2011 of Harper County's Midway. Midway here was located halfway between Kiowa and Anthony. The sign was a project of the Harper County Preservation and Tourism Alliance, funded through the Harper County Community Foundation.
By the way, there are 212 Midways in the United States, which makes it the most popular place name.
