Q: There are lots of towns in other states named after Kansas, Kansas City or the Kansas Territory. For instance, there's a place called "Little Kansas" in Pennsylvania and a "Kansas Settlement" in Arizona. There's a "Kansasville, Wisconsin," a "Kansas City, Oregon" and, of course, the city in Missouri named "Kansas City." Beyond these examples, can you name ANY OTHER state that has a city or town specifically named "Kansas?" Do Not count Kansas City, Kansas, in your answer.

     (According to our research, we believe there are six possible answers.)
