The Chanute Historical Society and the City of Chanute are active partners in the Chanute Hero's Way project. Several stones have been set along the Hike-Bike path located behind the Depot. They each await a bronze plaque that will honor someone in Chanute's past.
Honorees for the plaques are chosen as follows: Anyone in the public can fill out a Nomination Form and give it to a committee member (Martha McCoy, Warren Alford, Linus Thuston, Kristi Dozier, Phil Chaney and Jim Whaley). Nomination forms can be found at the Public Library or be obtained from any member of the committee. Once the committee receives the nomination form, they will review the information and determine if the nominee fits the eligibility criteria. This will be an ongoing project. A lot of time is invested in reviewing the nomination forms. All of the nomination forms will remain on file with the committee and if not chosen right away, may be considered at a later time.
