Bazine, Kansas - ElevatorsBazine, Kansas is located in Ness County on Hwy 96 between Ness City and Rush Center in southwest Kansas. Here one can enjoy geo-caching, the city park, and the mystical western Kansas landscape.

The "Christ Pilot Me” hill and marker, one The 8 wonders of Ness County, are located just east of Bazine.  This marker is a beautiful limestone tribute.
 
The original inspiration began in early 1940, during WWII.  Kenneth R. Timken, a Bazine schoolteacher, sat in his living room listening to a recording of “Jesus Savior, Pilot Me.”  He thought how nice the words “Christ Pilot Me” would look on Robert & Mary (Ryersee) Marshall’s hill.  Late in August of 1940, 40 youth from Bazine churches laid the rock bearing the prayerful expression.  It has become an area landmark for both motorists and aviators. 

 

Another of The 8 Wonders of Ness County is Bazine Limestone, just turn south on Main Street then go east on Farnsworth 2 blocks. Glenn Schniepp’s quarry on the farm southeast of Bazine was first used in the 1870’s by J.E. Farnsworth. Mr. Farnsworth’s stone barn, located south of the house, is one of Ness County’s prized historical artifacts. The barn was 100’ by 50’ with a full hayloft and living quarters.
