Box Kansas.

Box was a United States Post office and had one store within the post office.  There is very little on Box as it only lasted ten years.  I couldn't find any historical records on why it was there or why the name of Box.  Like I said there isn't much information here, but even so some one may need the information.  I usually pick towns and post offices with a little more information, but thats how they are lost to history.  The Kansas towns and post office were of importance to all of Kansas even if they were big or small, they all should be given a notice even if its just a side note so they will not be for gotten.
