Russell Springs, Kansas; Where the Past Meets the Present

Come visit historical western Kansas and experience the rustic charm of the Logan House Hotel located in Russell Springs along the “Western Vistas Historic Byway.”

The historical Logan House Hotel was built in 1887 to help establish the incorporated town of Russell Springs and to house the construction workers building the courthouse.  The nine room hotel is the perfect venue for family reunions, birthday parties, women’s gatherings (quilters, crafters, scrap bookers), or those wanting to remember what the simple life was like in a small, turn of the century, Midwestern  town. In the fall, hunters needing lodging will enjoy the ambience of the western décor.

The hotel has nine decorated bedrooms, three with queen beds and six with double beds. One twin roll-away is available and there’s adequate floor space for those wanting to set up air mattress beds. There are two full bathrooms on the main floor. The kitchen area has a glass top electric range, two refrigerators, a microwave, and many small appliances. Dishes, cookware, serving dishes, baking dishes, and other kitchen supplies are available for guest use. One regular guest described the hotel as a Bed and Breakfast. “You make your own bed and cook your own breakfast.”  The front door opens to a large sitting room with a table for board games, jigsaw puzzles, and the social graces of visiting. Off the dining room is a large family room with TV, VCR, DVD player, CD player and many VHS tapes. There is also a piano that might not be perfectly tuned but is very playable.

Across the street from the hotel is Porter Park with large open areas to recreate and is set up with a disc golf course. On the hotel property is a horseshoe pit and other large areas available to set up your own lawn games (croquet, badmitten, volleyball, etc.)

The covered, wraparound porch with rocking chairs lends an air of nostalgia to a relaxing stay. If you’re up early enough, you may see turkeys or deer. A drive several miles from town will provide other wildlife viewing experiences such as golden eagles, prairie dogs, antelope, deer, hawks, turkey vultures, etc. There are interesting rock formations to see all around the area.

Russell Springs is also home to the Butterfield Trail Museum. The Butterfield Overland Despatch was the stagecoach route between Atchison and Denver in the 1860s. The museum building was the Logan County courthouse from 1887-1963. In 1965, the building was dedicated as the Butterfield Trail Historical Museum.  The museum is open May through Labor Day.
