Kansas to Preserve and Develop Lake Scott State Park


The State of Kansas has announced plans to preserve and develop Lake Scott State Park, reports Kansas Agland. During a ceremony held on Monday at the lake, Governor Sam Brownback and Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism Secretary Robin Jennison announced the formation of the Scott State Park Historic Preservation and Development Committee.

The committee plans to raise funds to protect the park, the lake, and the surrounding historical features, which include the remains of the northernmost Native American pueblo, El Cuartelejo. Situated along the Western Vistas Historic Byway, Lake Scott State Park is about 12 miles north of Scott City in the western part of the state.
