Native Stone Fence Workshop Slated in Wamego

WAMEGO, Kan. (AP) — With few trees in large swaths of Kansas prairieland, early settlers built fences out of stone instead.  People interesting in learning more about how those fences were built will get a chance this spring during a festival in Wamego. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the Native Stone Scenic Byway Committee is offering a stone fence workshop May 2 and 3. The Kansas Sampler Festival will be set up that weekend in Wamego.  Workshop participants will construct a new fence in Wamego City Park. That breaks from the tradition of doing the workshop along the Native Stone Scenic Byway.  A professionally trained dry stone conservancy mason will be the lead teacher. The registration fee is $80.
