Kristine Schmucker with Harvey County Historical Museum will be presenting today.  In 1911, the Santa Fe Railroad noted: "One of the most serious problems of railway maintenance between the Missouri River and the Rocky Mountains is that of securing and holding a sufficient supply of labor.. to obtain a better trained and steadier class of laboreres, efforts are made to locate men with families. . . That requies housing these laborers in a way not before attempted to any extent by the Santa Fe."
