Homesteading in Barton County

Heizer

The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad had begun work on laying tracks in Barton County in the 1880's. A demand for some towns to be located along the line created the town of Heizer to the northwest of Great Bend. It, like the other towns in the northern part of the county, never really did have a boom period.

The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
