TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Starting this summer, Cowley County in south-central Kansas will be designated by law as the state’s stone bridge capital.

Gov. Sam Brownback signed a bill Friday to bestow the honor. It was first legislation signed by the governor so far this year, and it takes effect July 1.

The measure says Cowley County is home to 18 stone arch bridges built before 1910, and all but one still carry traffic daily.
