Thanks to all those who have donated their time, money, and resources to make the Cato restoration project become a reality. So much progress has been made on our beautiful little school since we began this work over ten years ago. It has all been possible because of generous donations from people who care about the Cato School and a grant from the Kansas Historical Society.
