Alcove Springs was a stop along the Oregon Trail near Independence Crossing in Marshall County, Kansas. Travelers along the trail gave the springs its name. It is located about four miles north of Blue Rapids. Across the road from the Alcove Springs park is another park commemorating the Oregon Trail and features history, wagon swales and a D.A.R. marker memorializing Sarah Keyes, a member of the Donner Party who died in 1846. The exact location of her burial is unknown.
The fall was dry when we went. 06 Sept 2016. But the rest of the site was beautiful and full of history. Make sure and check out the grave across the road.
