"Samuel Hunt Grave"
on the
Santa Fe Trail

     The Samuel Hunt Grave is just north of Kansas Highway 31 and about 0.5 mile west of the Havana Stage Station site. Private Samuel Hunt, U.S. Army Dragoons, served with Colonel Henry Dodge's Rocky Mountain expedition in 1835 and died at this location on the return march to Fort Leavenworth. This is the earliest known gravesite of a soldier on the Santa Fe Trail.
