National Park Has Amazing Food Community

Nicodemus National Historic Site


Nicodemus Kansas sits in the heart of America’s bread basket. Its settlers were freed slaves who carved the prairie into farmland and a community of their own. A pie baked from scratch and a fried fish dinner pulled straight from the river, both help tell the story of who you are on the plains of Nicodemus, Kansas. Over the next month, Nicodemus National Historic Site invites you to join us as we celebrate the rich culture, land and history of America’s longest remaining black-founded town, west of the Mississippi.
