Atchison, Kansas

Situated on hills and bluffs along the Missouri River, Atchison is one of the most scenic and historic towns in Kansas. Brick streets climb hills and wind along river bluffs, offering sweeping views of the river valley beyond. Grand Victorian homes with carriage houses recall glorious days when wealthy lumber merchants and railroad magnates walked the streets. No matter how many times you've seen them, you can't help but be impressed by these architectural gems, which form a stunning necklace the Missouri wears at Atchison.
