CAMP WICHITA

CAMP WICHITA. Camp Wichita was a military post near the site of present Buffalo Springs in southeastern Clay County. It may have been little more than a way station for couriers traveling between Fort Richardson and Red River Station. It was used intermittently by the Sixth United States Cavalry from 1868 to 1873.
