The Early Days Of Hays – Ellis County Historical Museum

When we visit a new destination, one of our goals is to learn about its unique past. Every city and town has its own stories to tell, it just requires finding the right storyteller. To learn about the early days of hays, we tapped into the knowledge of Katie Annett, from the Ellis County Historical Society Museum. Unfortunately, due to COVID, the museum was closed to the public, but Katie was more than happy to walk us through the other buildings. We want to thank Visit Hays and Katie Annett for hosting our visit. Rest assured all opinions are our own. The Early [...]

Local Love – Tiger Burgers

Like most college cities, the mascot can penetrate almost every aspect of life. As we rolled into Hays, Kansas, we expected to see the gratuitous display of Tiger memorabilia. After all, the Fort Hays State University has used the tiger mascot since 1914. We always welcome this deep-seated local love and embrace the pride that each community has in its history. Discovering a restaurant that was founded by two local investors was just an added bonus. Since the lunch hour had passed us by, we knew a good meal was needed to rescue us from our ravenous hungers. Time to check out Tiger [...]
