The History Of Wichita, Kansas
The origins of the city of Wichita, Kansas lie with businessmen who came to hunt in the area and traded with the Native American population; Wichita was incorporated in 1870. The initial growth of the city was helped by its position on the Chisholm Trail. This trail was the route taken by cattle drives from Texas ranches to Kansas railheads. It was named after Jesse Chisholm who was responsible for building several trading posts along the route. Over the years Wichita has grown from its humble origins. Throughout the twentieth century it became known as a major producer of aircraft, and remains an aircraft production city to this day. Also during the twentieth century there was an oil boom in the neighbouring Butler County which resulted in Wichita becoming an oil town and base for the offices of companies in the industry. Wichita remains a major manufacturing city. But, as you can see from our acrylic fridge magnet there are many attractive sights to see, such as the Wichita Art and Farm Market.
