This book traces the development of both a town and the county in which it resides from their origins in the 1850s through the original publication. The first half of the book provides a chronological account of the development of Emporia. Following this is a section detailing the growth of Lyon County's other towns: Americus, Hartford, Plymouth, Neosho Rapids, Reading, Olpe, Allen, Admire, Bushong, and Miller. The remainder of the book deals with every aspect of Emporia and Lyon County life, including religion, politics, commerce, education, social organizations, local manners and customs, and even "outlaw raids and victims." Biographies of outstanding citizens, as well as listings of local officials of 1929, are also included.
