Kansas, and specifically Barton County, rests at the geographic center of the continental United States. Some wag once declared Kansas to be “flatter than a pancake” and state boosters have been burdened with the image ever since. The eastern third of Kansas is actually rippled with rolling hills and the land actually averages over 2,000 feet in elevation, topping out on the the 4,039-foot summit of Mount Sunflower a few steps from the Colorado border.
That does not mean Kansas does not abound in long vistas disappearing into the horizon, a souvenir of the regions’s time spent as a seabed over 200 million years ago. Some of the finest are in the eastern part of the state in the Flint Hills that is traversed by a 102-mile scenic byway. The land here is studded with shale and flinty limestone which repelled plows and led to the most lush tallgrass prairie in America. Today the largely undeveloped land is the provence of ranches where buyers can run cattle, hunters can pursue deer and dream of the elk and bison that used to graze here in the millions, or simply explore the land on foot or horseback.
Despite its reputation for homogeneity, land buyers in Kansas can spick and choose from a beguiling range of terrain and climate that goes from arid sub-tropical (only four states have ever recorded a temperature higher than Alton did when the thermometer reached 121 degrees in 1936) to humid continental with harsh winters.
While most Kansas land will be found switching hands in the eastern half of the state there are opportunities for choice property throughout the Sunflower State. Prices vary to accommodate any budget on lots of smaller acreage to spreads of several thousand acres.
