Beloit, Mitchell County, Kansas

Last month, I took off for my 2018 road trip. From Martinsburg I traveled through West Virginia through Huntington and then through Kentucky, Missouri and Kansas. I stuck to the Interstate until I got to Lawrence, Kansas. After spending the night in Lawrence, I went away from I-70 and followed secondary roads – mostly Rt 24 – through Kansas. Among the small towns I drove through was Beloit, where I was very impressed with the Mitchell County Courthouse.

Mitchell County was established in Kansas in 1871. Construction of the current courthouse started in 1900 and the building was dedicated in November, 1901. The building is constructed of native limestone.

Ultimately, this road trip took me from Kansas through Colorado, Wyoming, North Dakota, and South Dakota before turning for home.
