If urban center is a reflection of its region, then Saline County owes much to its cities. The communities of Brookville, Glendale, and Bavaria boast of unique qualities which enhance the Crossroads Region. Each shares a symbiotic relationship with the larger population center of Salina, a relationship which provides rewarding contacts, contracts, and entertainment.

Follow the ribbon of Crawford Street, in Salina, to the west. Cross over the double lanes of I-35, and you will find the wandering curves of Highway 140. The scenic road leads through the bottomland fields of the Saline River Valley, following the old railroad tracks along the flatlands.

Just before you get to the hills, you will enter the town of Brookville, home of one of the most famous eateries in Kansas. Brookville is more than just the Brookville Hotel, though. The town prides itself on its old-time country atmosphere.
