Pioneer Bluffs Foundation and Site

Congratulation to a successful first year of The Pioneer Bluffs Foundation, of Matfield Green, in Chase County. Pioneer Bluffs is on the Flint Hills National Scenic Byway, Hwy 177, one mile north of Matfield Green. For more information call 620-753-3414 or email

From a brief history in the 2006-2007 annual report: "Imagine the vision and determination German immigrant Charles Rogler had when, in 1859, at age 23 he made the long walk from Council Bluffs, Iowa to Chase County, Kansas to claim a homestead on 160 acres of tallgrass prairie. That homestead and additional acreage acquired over the years became Pioneer Bluffs Farm and remained under the watchful eye of the Rogler family for 147 years - a cherished part of Chase County ranching and farming history."

Here is wishing the Foundation 147 successful years and more.

See you in the Kansas Flint Hills! ;-)
