Caldwell, Kansas ... Rowdy Town
Nicknamed the Border Queen, Caldwell was a wild, wide open Cowtown in the days of the cattle drives along the Chisholm Trail. Being a lawman in Caldwell was nearly impossible. Between 1879 and 1885, the town went through 16 marshals. Violence was rampant. Outlaws were buried in Caldwell's boot hill, and a cemetery was begun northwest of town.
