Old Photos: Mennonite Settler Statue Dedication

Few photos from the dedication of the Mennonite Settler Statue in Newton,KS in 1942. Mennonites immigrated to Kansas from Ukraine in 1874 and are credited with helping to turn Kansas into the breadbasket of America and subsequently placing images of wheat on our license plates.
