Hiawatha is a quiet town at the intersection of two main highways. In rural Kansas, that's often the predictor of whether a town will survive or slowly die off.
The town is pretty large for the area, with a hospital, lake, and many businesses. It seems to be doing pretty well.
We were tired after a long day, so we didn't do as much exploring as we hoped to. My one regret was that we missed visiting the Davis Memorial in Mt. Hope Cemetery. Since this town is at such a major intersection, I'm sure we'll be back to see it again someday.
