Teeter Rock Kansas
James Teeter owned land in Southeast Kansas near Cassidy in the 1870’s. He built a huge pile of rocks on the crest of the highest hill, seen for miles, as a guide for homesteaders who were searching for the Cottonwood River. The rocks lasted until about 1920 when oil was discovered on this land and the oil town of Teeterville was born. The original stones were used to build the town and houses of the newly formed oil town. For whatever reason the town failed and descendants of James Teeter upended a huge limestone rock where the old pile was in the 1950’s. Once again Tetter Rock stood tall, visible in the Kansas Flint Hills.
