During the latter half of the 19th century and the early part of the 20th century a diverse population of European immigrants came to Southeast Kansas in search of a better life. The first view of Pittsburg for many was from the depot of the Frisco Railroad and their accommodations were the Europe Hotel.

Battling hard times and cultural barriers these men and women were a part of the great melting pot that was the United States of America. Through their perseverance, determination and hard work, one-third of the nation's coal was mined in this area which helped Kansas become an industrial force. They left behind a unique cultural richness and hope for each new generation.
