Symphony in the Flint Hills Brings Visitors to Paxico

Every Spring in Kansas music lovers and nature lovers alike come to enjoy a feast for the senses during the Symphony in the Flint Hills. The setting is unlike any other concert in the world; the Kansas City Symphony Orchestra plants itself in the midst of the rolling hills of tallgrass prairie to serenade festival-goers under the big blue sky.

Adding to the experience are fun diversions like a Wildflower Walk, prairie education activities and covered wagon rides. It all adds up to an unforgettable excursion and a chance to breathe in the delicate beauty of Kansas in the Spring, and to appreciate her rich pioneer heritage.

We were fortunate at Mill Creek Antiques to welcome symphony-goers to our little town for some rest, refreshment and antique shopping.

A total of 131 sack lunches were served up to a lovely group of folks that arrived in five big buses.  Our friend Barbara, who coordinated the visit, recently told us “We loved our trip and visit to your sweet Paxico! Thank you for a memorable day!”

Mill Creek Antiques got its start when Steve Hund Jr., owner and lineal descendant of Paxico’s first German founders, purchased a historic 1880’s building in downtown Paxico to house his collection of American and Victorian antiques. He continues to specialize in the restoration of vintage wood and gas heating stoves and cook stoves.
