National Farmers Memorial



Surrounded by flags from all fifty states, the National Farmers Memorial is located at the entrance of the Agricultural Hall of Fame and National Center, Bonner Springs, Kansas, 18 miles west of Kansas City. The open air pavilion displays three huge bronze and steel American Farmer Sculptures, "past, present, and future", (11 x 33 feet) by nationally known artist Lewis Watkins.

Thanks Ron for this interesting postcard!
