HUMBOLDT KANSAS (2-SIDED)
Humboldt, named after Baron von Humboldt, was founded in 1857 and sits along the Neosho River in Southeast Kansas. Humboldt was the Allen County seat for seven years, from 1858 until 1865, when Iola "stole" it from them. At least thats the story I've heard and it's fun to keep the thrill alive!
Not many folk are familiar with Humboldt but the great Walter Johnson called this place home. He won 417 games for the Washington Senators and was one of the most dominating players in baseball history. The Big Train was one of the “first five” inducted into the baseball HOF. Another local hero was George Sweatt, who played with the famous Kansas City Monarchs.
So it was only fitting to use a lightning bolt to identify Humboldt and to pay respect to one of my favorite baseball classics, The Natural!
