dc.description.abstract The author describes the life of an early Irish Catholic settlement in eastern Kansas. Originally a Quaker community, Irish immigration "exploded" there just after the Civil War, eventually stamping the town with a particular religious culture. After railroads made the Fort Riley mail road obsolete, Springdale declined. St. Thomas Catholic Church was a vital center for decades. en_US
