    About Us

    Judy Marshall is a treasure in our community and has authored several books including “Legends & Lore of Bourbon County” which we have for sale at the Chamber or Hedgehog.INK! and a portion of the proceeds benefits the Fort Scott Area Community Foundation.

    Judy is also an active Rotarian in the Fort Scott Rotary Club.

    Legends & Lore of Bourbon County: Stories of the early days in Bourbon County, Kansas … from the Osage Indians to the men who rode the railroad, and much much more. Judy Marshall not only researched the legends and lore of the region’s history but also added a new focus on its ghostly past and present. Ghosts, bank robbers, hobos, famous residents, kids scaling bridges – all come to life in the stories frequently told by the people who experienced the event.
