Steampunk Inspiration: Iola, KS

I’m inspired to create by so many things I encounter–especially architecture. On my many roadtrips with Rhys around the state and region, I continually discover new and beautiful buildings & remnants of buildings that give me new ideas.

One such inspiration was on our recent roadtrip to Kansas City. We stopped in Iola, KS to take in their town square. We soon found out that the Allen County Courthouse which stood at the center of the square had been razed in 1959 and all that was left of it was the clock mechanism and clock face.

The sun was shining and it lit up the clock face so you could see the gears & mechanics through it. It was truly breathtaking.

I highly recommend the stop, it’s well worth your time (pun intended).
