LIVING IN CEDAR POINT

Cedar Point, Kansas, in western Chase County, was founded in 1862. Today it is a semi-ghost town with several remaining buildings and a historic flour mill.

The first settlers were Captain Orlo H. Drinkwater and his brother Delos F. Drinkwater, who arrived in 1857.

From Pennsylvania, Orlo Drinkwater and his brother came to Kansas in April 1855 and were located near Topeka. An ardent Free-State man and a follower of old John Brown and Jim Lane, O.H. Drinkwater took an active part in the border war. He was present at the organization of the Free State party at the Big Springs Convention in 1855 and a member of the Free-State Legislature at its last session at Topeka in 1857.

When the Drinkwaters settled in the upper Cottonwood Valley, they built a log cabin along a small unnamed stream in the far western part of the county. Orlo Drinkwater suggested the creek be named Cedar Creek for the abundant cedar trees. It still bears that name today. Mr. Fratchet opened a grocery store in 1859.
