Nicodemus, A Town that Will Not Die

Nicodemus' Visitors Center and Museum is one of the few buildings still in use.  The building itself was a WPA Project, finished in 1939.      The building above is the old schoolhouse indicated in the sign.  There is also a Senior Residence and a Baptist Church.  The Church is apparently still is use.  There are no businesses open in the town.  As of the middle of January 2012, the population of Nicodemus was 19 but it is still the oldest remaining all African-American town in Kansas--founded in 1877 by ex-slaves from the South.
