Long before Lewis and Clark's 1803 exploration of the West, the Spanish explorers traveled the region looking for riches. Coronado passed through the area in 1541.
Coronado Heights is on a hill northwest of Lindsborg, Kansas. If you are traveling through Kansas on I-35, it is closeby.
It is alleged to be near the place where Francisco Vasquez de Coronado gave up his search for the seven cities of gold and turned around to return to Mexico.
