Sunset at Fox Creek School.jpg
An autumn sunset at the Lower Fox Creek School in the Tallgrass Prairie of the Flint Hills. The school was built in 1884 of natural limestone and was an example of the common school. The model of the common school proposed by Horace Mann was embraced by Kansans when it was time to organize schools in the new territory (and later the state) of Kansas.
