On a cold winter day just before we moved to Kansas City, Wes took me exploring in Manhattan, Kansas. One of the places we went was the Rocky Ford State Fishing Lake. Originally, the ford’s power was used by pioneers to operate a grist (flour) mill but was taken over by the Rocky Ford Power Company in the early 1900s. Today it’s the site of a dam, and recreation/fishing area.
