Coronado Heights just outside of Lindsborg, Kansas is a hill that is supposedly the site where Francisco Vásquez de Coronado ended his search for the fabled “seven cities of gold” and decided to return back to Mexico. Now a park and scenic overlook, Coronado Heights is situated on a three-hundred-foot promontory and features a castle-like building and picnic area. The view from here is rather spectacular and the drive up to the site is beautiful itself, featuring several trees, sumac, and yucca. There is also a three-mile trail for mountain biking with two loops that travel around the park’s base.

The origins of the Bethany Lutheran Church date back to August 19th of 1869 when a small gathering of Swedish immigrants took place to fill the need of their own church just outside of the town of Lindsborg, Kansas. This church was originally known as the Swedish Evangelical Bethany Church, later renamed Bethany Lutheran Church. From its small start, the church congregation continued to grow and it was decided that they needed to build a new church in Lindsborg in 1874. The church structure resembles that of cathedrals found in southern Sweden, with the central part constructed of Native Dakota sandstone.
