2011 Area Guide - Symphony in the Flint Hills
2011 Area Guide
Welcome to the 2011 Symphony in the Flint Hills Weekend Guide.
The 2011 Symphony in the Flint Hills promises to be once again a memorable event. We are proud to
welcome Capitol Federal as the 2011 Major Presenting Sponsor.
As in years past, the day will culminate with a performance by the Kansas City Symphony in a beautiful Flint
Hills tallgrass prairie setting. But there will be many things to experience before you finally settle in to enjoy the
sounds of the Kansas City Symphony as the sun sets over the hills.
Carefully choose your route to the site. Make the trip part of your experience. Relish the beauty of the
wildflowers, marvel at the historic stone fences and barns, spend time in the communities, and walk Mount Mitchell. Blue
highways provide more interest and local color than the interstate. Gravel roads are even better.
The afternoon at the site will offer numerous opportunities for education, shopping, and entertainment, as outlined in this
Weekend Guide.
This year, in recognition of the 150th anniversary of both Kansas’s admission into the Union as a free state and the beginning
of the Civil War, the Symphony in the Flint Hills has partnered with the Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area to tell the
story of the area’s significant role in defining the meaning of freedom.
The site opens at 1 p.m. with presentations in the education tents ranging from stories of Bleeding Kansas to modern ranching
techniques. Of course, there will still be the terrific Prairie Art Tent, and many more attractions.
We encourage you to make it a day trip—experience the culture, beauty, and landmarks of the area in the morning. Enjoy
an exhibition of early 20th Century paintings by Maude Mitchell, daughter of Beecher Bible and Rifle Colony pioneers, at
the Wabaunsee County Museum in Alma. Take in the events at the site in the afternoon and then relax to enjoy the sunset
performance by the Kansas City Symphony. We look forward to seeing you on June 11.

In the Flint Hills: Freedom’s Frontier
Sixth Annual Symphony in the Flint Hills
M T. M I TC H E L L H E R I TAG E P R AI R I E
This 45-acre hilltop prairie is a memorial park that ties Wabaunsee County to one of the most dramatic and critical chapters
of American history, the prelude to the Civil War known as
“Bleeding Kansas”. A walking trail winds through wildflowers to
the summit where you can view the Kansas River valley and its
landmarks. It is located three and a half miles south of Wamego
on Mitchell Prairie Lane, south of the junction of K-18 and K-99.
The park is dedicated to Captain William Mitchell and the
Beecher Bible and Rifle Colony, the famous company of New
England emigrants who came to Kansas in April 1856 to assure the territory’s entry into the Union as a free state.
Captain Mitchell’s log cabin was one of the stations on the “Underground Railroad,” and the home will be open to visitors during the
Mt. Mitchell/ Mitchell Farmstead Celebration, Saturday, June11. For a schedule of events at the farm visit: www.mountmitchellprairie.org.

BE E C H E R BI BL E AN D R I F L E C HURC H.
In late June, 1857, fifteen of the members of the Beecher Colony and thirteen earlier
settlers met to organize “The First Church of Christ in Wabaunsee,” with the Rev. Harvey
Jones as Pastor. Of this group of twenty-eight charter members, nine were women. After
two years of raising funds for a church building, mostly in New Haven, they started construction of the sturdy stone church-that still stands in Wabaunsee. The stones were hauled
from quarries, on sledges drawn by oxen. The mortar was mixed by hand, and the long
shingles, called “shakes,” were made with crude hand tools. The church-yard was edged
with hitching posts, and there were newly planted trees and lilacs in appropriate spots.
The new church was dedicated in May, 1862. Those same lilac bushes still bloom
toady. The property is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the
Beecher Bible and Rifle Church.
Find more articles and in-depth information about these topics in the 2011 Field Journal.
