Denmark is an unincorporated community in Lincoln County, Kansas, United States. One of the first permanent settlements in Lincoln County, it was settled about 1869 by Danish Lutherans[1] who laid the cornerstone for a stone church in 1876. Built of the "post rock" limestone that is so abundant in the county, it was completed in 1880. A bell tower and entry were added in 1901. The village is located 3 miles north of K-18 and still has a community hall, a railroad, and a grain elevator. Denmark is part of "The Amazing 100 Miles". The history and folklore has been described by Ruth Sorensen in "Beyond the Prairie Wind".
