Property Remarks

So much to enjoy in this 80.10 acres close to the city! Heavily wooded where wildlife is abundant. There is a shop/cabin retreat on site for your convenience. The 48 x 30 building was constructed in 2008 by a builder. Metal building is very well built and insulated. Features an oversized 2 car garage on one side and a fully furnished cabin area on the other. The inside is finished with lots of windows to see out and enjoy the land, a wood stove, mounted TV, full bathroom, kitchen, and a covered patio. There is a 1000 gallon septic system, 200 amp electric service that is underground (no wires to detract from the lands beauty). Well water is on site, however rural water connections are 1/4 mile away if buyer so desires. The well has a pipe connection to the small pond just behind the cabin if it is not as full as you might want it to be naturally. Enjoy the creek that winds thru the property, as it is a beautiful site to see with all the wooded areas surrounding it. On the other side of the property there is a large watershed pond for your recreation. Approximately 56 acres of the property is currently farmed typically in beans and/or wheat. The beans have just been cut this year so you can see the outlines of farm area. This is a true hidden treasure in Rose Hill Kansas! What a wonderful private country retreat that is less than 30 minutes from Wichita. Call for your private showing.

Rose Hill– History

The city of Rose Hill was named by an ambitious young bachelor, Mr. J.H. Lowery and has been in four locations. In 1869, Mr. Lowery settled about one mile south and one-quarter mile east of the present elementary school. The government gave the railroad company a strip on either side of their track if they would build from St. Louis to the west coast. Young men were urged to “go West Young Man Go West”. Advertisements said, “Kansas is the right latitude for the farmer to make money. Kansas offers people exactly what they are looking for. The winters are short, dry and invigorating.”

With such promise, Mr. Lowery planted roses, shrubs and trees on both sides of the two lanes that led to his house. He was from Rose Hill, New York, and planned to get his nursery stock and seeds from his parents to sell to the settlers. The law at that time required farmers to plant fruit and wood bearing trees. Mr. Lowery asked the government for a post office in his home. He had not anticipated blizzards, drought, and finally grasshoppers. His stock was ruined. Mr. Lowery persuaded Levi Williams to put the post office in his home, which was located one mile east of the original. After five cruel years in Rose Hill, Kansas, Mr. Lowery returned to New York in 1874.

Another settlement grew one mile east of our present town. The post office was once again moved to Mr. Staley’s store between the late 1870’s and 1880’s. The railroad was built in 1889. The citizens of Rose Hill moved their buildings to the present location after the depot was built in 1892.
