Emporia is known as the "Front Porch to the Flint Hills". The Flint Hills area encompasses approximately five million acres of tallgrass prairie and stretches through Kansas from Nebraska to Oklahoma. These beautiful hills lie just miles from Emporia to the west and are an untouched national treasure of scenic hills, prairie ranch land and small, clean lakes. It is not uncommon to observe a cattle drive orchestrated by ranchers atop their horses. Visit the Z-bar ranch, a wonderful example of 1800's Italianate architecture (now a National Preserve) designed to protect a portion of the largest remaining unbroken tracts of tallgrass prairie left in the world. Open for tours, educational and interesting! Emporia is the home of Emporia State University, museums, theatre, antique shops and National Teachers Hall of Fame.
