Jose Antonio Chavez Marker

Site of the Chavez Marker Rice County Kansas

In conjunction with the landowners, two markers have been placed to identify locations associated with the Owl Creek Crossing of the Santa Fe Trail in Rice County, Kansas.

The first marker replicates a stone post inscribed with the single word of CHAVEZ placed at this location in the pioneer days of Rice County. At some unknown date, the original stone was removed.

To get to this marker, at the south edge of Lyons, Kansas on K14 highway is American Road, go 2 miles south, turn left and proceed four and one half miles east to the marker on the left or on the north side of the road.
