Cow Town

Abilene, Kansas began as a stage stop in 1857, by 1867 the Kansas Pacific Railway pushed its way through and the Chisholm Trail ended here making this the wild west's first "Cow Town". I don't think that Wild Bill Hickock (once the town marshall) or Dwight D. Eisenhower (once the President of the United States) would recognize it anymore.
