The Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe railroad company built the bunkhouse structure in 1922 to provide shelter for the section hands who maintained the railroad. This is one of several such facilities built for each section ten to thirty miles apart. The bunkhouse, one of the few remaining, included 11 units and an adjacent foreman’s house.
In 2001, Bill McBride, Julia Fabris McBride, and Karl Rohlich purchased Matfield Station. The historic Santa Fe building was “one good rain away” from collapse, and they couldn’t stand to see the bunkhouse disintegrate.
We love the views, open space and fresh air, horses across the road, Flint Hill sunsets, and wind on the prairie.
Stay in comfortable lodging in the restored bunkhouse.
Walk the PrairyArt Path — miles of prairie path with dramatic views of the Valley of the South Fork, and sculpture by Bill McBride and other prairie inspired artists.

Explore the surroundings — open prairie and miles of gravel backroads, the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve, and the nearby small towns Cottonwood Falls and Strong City.

Prairie PastTimesPrairie PastTimes
220 1/2 Broadway Cottonwood Falls Ks 66845
In an effort to give people a hand-crafted item to remind them of the craftsmanship of the past, the artists and creators at Prairie PastTimes offer something to behold, touch, see, enjoy, hear, use, and wear. The members of Prairie PastTimes have a passion for the quality and process of making things with their hands. They can take a block of wood, a sheet of glass, a piece of cold steel, an old lump of clay, a single musical note, a scene on the prairie, a piece of thread, a piece of cloth, and turn it in to something you can love and treasure. The amount of energy, thought, work and skill honed over time that goes into each piece represents the artist’s love of life and their place, the Flint Hills. The process they follow is slow and meticulous, more reminiscent of past times. In our mass-produced world, you can buck the trends and take home a unique work of beauty, connected to a wonderful place and designed by a real person with a creative heart and skilled, caring hands.
