Stuttgart Kansas.

Date is unknown.

Stuttgart is an unincorporated community in Phillips County, Kansas, United States, founded on February 6, 1888. It lies in the north of Kansas at U.S. Route 36 between Prairie View and Phillipsburg, not far from the border with Nebraska. Its beginning can be traced back to the early 1870s, when the first settlers arrived in the area. From its beginnings as shelters and small block houses, Stuttgart grew to have two Lutheran churches, a public school, hotel, cafe, bank, cinema, hairdresser, post office, wood yard, grocer's shop, railway depot, grain silo, repairshop, blacksmith, dairy, and more.

Today it is a calmer settlement. There is yet another Lutheran church, a grain silo, a garage and a gas station with service, as well as a photo studio.
