STORY: 

LYDA CONLEY and her sisters. 

Woman graduates from Kansas City College of Law in 1902. Since no man would represent the sisters against the U.S. Government, Lyda took it upon herself to prepare for legal action by mastering the law to defend the burial grounds. 

FORT CONLEY~ 

While Lyda fought her battle in the courts, her sister Helena, guarded the fort because of the intrusions. Helena wired the cemetery gates together and put up a sign: 

“You Trespass at Your Own Peril.” 

The sisters took up their vigil over the graves after learning the land was about to be sold. They built a 6 x 8 foot frame structure and placed a fence of iron spikes around it. Helena stood armed with their father’s double barreled shotgun, an axe and the American Flag. She used them without fear. Instantly, their new home became known as “Fort Conley.”
