Augusta, Kansas

The first building in Augusta, a log structure, built in 1868, is still preserved as a landmark and now houses a historical museum. Augusta was incorporated as a city in 1871. Augusta lies on a table land near the confluence of the Walnut and Whitewater Rivers. According to a local legend this plateau was the scene of many Indian battles including one in which thousands perished.
