The Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant

In 1942, the U.S. War Department constructed a rocket propellant factory between Eudora and De Soto, Kansas to provide ammunition to U.S. troops serving in WWII. Learn how the plant impacted both towns and the surrounding area in this episode of Time Capsule featuring special guest Ben Terwilliger, Executive Director of the Eudora Community Museum.
