Dear Friends,

Welcome to the new Lone Chimney Films website.  Lone Chimney is a 501c3 Not for Profit company that produces historical documentaries.  We are governed by a nine person board.  

Lone Chimney has produced two films.  "Touched by Fire:  Bleeding Kansas" and "Bloody Dawn:  The Lawrence Massacre."  Both films have aired on regional PBS stations and have been seen in over 200 schools across the Midwest.  Several historians and authors have contributed to the commentary and planning of LCF films.

LCF is currently in production on its third film, "The Road to Valhalla" which tells the story of the Civil War on the Kansas-Missouri border.  

The film will premiere in October 2013. 

The Road to Valhalla is written and directed by historian/author Ken Spurgeon.  The film is narrated by veteran character actor Buck Taylor.   Several musical artists, including Michael Martin Murphey are contributing to the musical soundtrack composed by Jed Marum.  

Please keep up with us on this website or our Facebook page.  If you'd like regular updates via email, send us an email at and ask to be added to our list. 

Thanks for helping us keep Kansas history alive and in front of our state and our communities.
