Directions to Lindsborg
Lindsborg is a small town, but a gem worth visiting with extra time at hand. Features of this city include the Smoky Hill River and its Swedish background. From I-135, take exit 72 or 78, whichever comes first, depending on the direction of your travel. K-4 travels through both directions of the town as well. At Exit 78, take K-4 west a few miles until you eventually arrive. At Exit 72, take the road west for a mile or so, then there will be an obvious turn right up north that will take you directly up to Lindsborg after another mile or so. This route used to be Business US-81.
Karpov International School of Chess
I like traveling here for multiple reasons. When available, there is open chess at the Karpov International School of Chess on Monday evenings at 6:30 to 8 PM downtown west of Main Street and just south of Lincoln Street. Also downtown, there are Swedish decorations you can find. On a nice hot summer afternoon, you can visit their swimming pool in the south part of town. You can even find more history of the town near the pool such as the McPherson County Old Mill Museum and the 1904 World’s Fair Swedish Pavilion.
In the north part of town, you can find Bethany College. Smoky Valley Middle and High Schools are on the west side of the town. The highway is really what is east of town, where there are gas stations and few places to eat and stay in the city.
