Eudora News and

This Week in Eudora History, will take a look back at some of the people, places and events, that shaped the history of this fine community. We will look at “the week that was” from times past.

For the dates of April 14 – April 20:

April 20, 1994, 19 years ago

The Eudora Board of Education approved an increase in school lunch prices for the next school year. In 1994-95, the price of a hot lunch will be $1.50 for students attending West Elementary, and $1.60 for students in grades 7-12. Lunch prices will remain at $1.45 for Nottingham Elementary School students. The increase is an effort by the district to make its food service program self-supporting.


April 15, 1926, 87 years ago

George Trefz, who owned and operated the Orpheum Cleaners in Lawrence for several months, has sold the business and is at home for the present. He is looking for another location.


April 19, 1900, 113 years ago

Henry Seybold, a former Eudora boy, who owns a boot and shoe store in Ponca City, Oklahoma, was completely burned out by a fire which swept away a large part of the business portion of that city last Thursday. His individual loss is estimated at about $5,000, partly insured. The building, which was owned by John and George Seybold of Topeka is a total loss.
