Comments: Frederick is a city in Rice County, Kansas, United States. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 18. In 2015, the U.S. Census Bureau estimated the population of 18, though a newspaper estimated the population to be 9. Frederick was incorporated in 1909. It was a shipping point at the junction of the Missouri Patfic and the St. Louis & San Francisco railroads. A post office was opened in Frederick (also spelled historically Frederic) in 1887, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1954.
Remains: In July 2015, Government officials report considering un-incorporating the city. As of August 2015, for the first time in nearly 130 years, the city doesn’t have a city council and no one ran for mayor in April 2015. The future of Frederick is uncertain because Rice County doesn’t have the power to unincorporate the city. According to state law, residents must bring a petition to the city council, then a special election will be called for a vote, but since there isn’t a city council then it can’t happen.
Current Status: In November 2016, the community voted on whether dissolve Frederick. Election workers at the Eureka Township voting location accidentally made a mistake by giving the wrong ballots to township residents who didn’t actually live in Frederick. 20 people voted, 13 voted to keep the community alive, but currently only 9 people live in Frederick. The mistake was caught more than a week after the vote was certified, which is after the 5 day window to contest a vote, thus Kansas Law locked the outcome, Frederick is still a city.
Remarks: In November 2017, another ballot issue was voted on whether to dissolve the city. The vote was 2-2.

Comments: Geneva is an unincorporated community in the northwestern part of Allen County, located in southeast Kansas, in the central United States.
Remains: The town of Geneva was founded by free-state men in the summer of 1857. A colony was formed in New York under the leadership of Ephraim Fisk, and another in Michigan under the leadership of Merritt Moore. These united, forming the Union Settlement Association, among the prominent members in which were Dr. B.L.G. Stone, G.L. Wait, S.T. Jones, Rev. G.S. Northrup, I.A. Holman, P.P. Phillips, E.J. Brinkerhoff, J.H. Spicer, A.P. Sain, H.R. Somers, Frank Ureidenberg, J.C. Redfield, and J.M. Mattoon. The colony selected the northwestern part of Allen County for a location, and started out with great expectations. There were about 300 families engaged to settle at once. It was decided to locate and lay out a town comprising not less than 640 acres (2.6 km2) of land. The site was chosen on account of the fertile prairie land around, as well as the heavy timber so close along the banks of the streams. It was decided to at once begin the building of a large structure and to found a non-sectarian college and academy.
Current Status: Although official s are not compiled for unincorporated places, the population of the surrounding Geneva Township was 172 in the 2000 census.
Remarks: Geneva continued to exist as a small unincorporated community, and by the year 1869 it contained two stores, one blacksmith shop, a wagon shop, a hotel, a Congregational Church built of stone, and an academy. This building was a frame structure two stories high, and the school had been established in 1866 under charge of the Neosho Presbytery. The was then about one hundred. By 1872 additional improvements were made, and several business enterprises were undertaken that afterward fell through. It was expected that a railroad would be built through that part of the county, and when the town failed to secure it, it began to decline. Geneva had a post office from November 1858 until September 1942.

Comments: Geuda Springs is a city in Cowley and Sumner counties in the U.S. state of Kansas.
Remains: On the line between Cowley and Sumner counties is a remarkable group of salt springs that put out 100 to 450 gallons each per hour and have been known since the earliest settlement of that section. These springs are on a branch of the St. Louis & San Francisco railroad, a little to the north of the town of Geuda Springs and about 7 miles (11 km) from Arkansas City. The waters from these springs infiltrate the waters of the nearby creeks. A lake formed by the creek near these springs has been greatly enlarged by damming the creek and now covers about 50 acres (200,000 m2), making it the largest body of salt water in the state. Geuda is said to be an Indian word, Ge-u-da, meaning healing springs, and the place must have been a well known stopping place with the Indians. Many improvements were made at the springs during the latter 1880’s, including a bath-house and hotel, lake improvements, and new automobile access. Much of the water has been bottled and shipped to points in Kansas and adjoining states. About 1890, a dam with a flume outlet was built across the salt marsh just north of the springs, which filled the marsh with water and created a lake large enough for recreational boating.
Current Status: As of the 2010 census, the city population was 185.
Remarks: Later in the 1900s, the of Geuda Springs slowly declined. During the 1950s, Geuda Springs had a bar which featured slot machines, dancing and music. A volunteer fire department exists to protect the town and the surrounding but primary fire protection is provided by Arkansas City. In the 1990s, a new community center was built for the residents. It is surrounded by homes over 80 years of age and an old church building. Geuda Springs has a cemetery to the northwest of town with tombstones dating to the 1870s. One notable gunfighter Luke Short, died in Geuda Springs in 1893 of congestive heart failure.
