Aerial Image over Flint Hills National Wildlife Refuge, Acquired on March 22, 1950 (Frame 1686)

Metadata Updated: October 9, 2019

Georeferenced image, acquired on March 22, 1950, over a portion of the Flint Hills National Wildlife Refuge. Image covers the central and western portions of the refuge including the town of Hartford. This data set is a georeferenced version of an original black and white aerial photograph downloaded from Earth Explorer. The original photo was georeferenced against the Coffey and Lyon County 2012 NAIP images. This frame occurs within both Coffey and Lyon Counties. This data set, in addition to the one in 1948, provides an interesting look back in time prior to the establishment of the John Redmond Dam and Reservoir on the Neosho River. The dam was authorized in 1950, with construction starting in 1959, and completion in late 1964, Flint Hills NWR was established in 1966. This image allows a look at habitats including which areas were cropped, native prairie, and woodlands, prior to the reservior completion. Major changes ensued in the surrounding landscape following closure of the dam. This image is being used by refuge staff to assist in understanding and visualizing the historical content of the lands within the refuge. Pixel resolution of this image is 5 meters. This image should be used for resource-level interpretation only.
