The Hays House was built in 1857 by the towns founder, Seth Hays, and is known as the oldest continuous restaurant west of the Mississippi.  In the early years, the building was used as a mail distribution point, district court, a place for church services and the site for publication of an early newspaper.  Today the Hays House is known as one of the finest restaurants in Kansas.
