Scammon, Kansas

The Scammon Miner 1898

Scammon Kansas, located in Cherokee county, was prospering during a mining boom in the late 1890s. The California Concert Company along with Houdini performed in Scammon in 1898. It appears the performers were only there for a weekend and then moved on. Houdini's magic was witnessed at the town Opera House. I am trying to determine where the company stayed while in Scammon. Any information or photos would be invaluable to my research and credited in the book.

Houdini & company likely arrived in town via the Kansas City - Ft. Smith - Memphis Railroad line from Weir, KS.

Do You Have INFO?

An important part of my research is discovering lost or
unpublished information about Houdini's time in Kansas. Any piece of information, stories, photos, posters, news clippings, I would be grateful to have, credit  & share in the book.
