Medieval Kansas

I had no idea Kansans during the Middle Ages built their castles of steel-plate instead of stone.  The fact that this one has survived the centuries in such excellent condition is testament to those early peoples’ advanced engineering skills.  Though I find it hard to believe they painted it white like this in the Dark Ages.  And was there a dungeon?  or a moat?  I don’t know.  There was not a single tour guide to be found – or information plaque, even.  Go see it in Manhattan.
