Directions to Cato, Kansas

    On U.S. Highway 69 between Ft. Scott and Pittsburg, Kansas, turn west on 720 Avenue, one mile north of the Arcadia turn-off (or one mile south of the Bourbon County line). Go west for one mile, then turn north for 1/2 mile and then left one mile to Cato.

We hope you'll drop by and take a look!
 
 
Thanks to all those who have donated their time, money, and resources to make the Cato restoration project become a reality. So much progress has been made on our beautiful little school since we began this work over ten years ago. It has all been possible because of generous donations from people who care about the Cato School and a grant from the Kansas Historical Society.
