Community Description:
Located in Southeast Kansas, this is a progressive city strategically located within driving distance of Kansas City, Wichita, and Topeka. It is a center for diverse manufacturing, trade, education, medicine, and tourism. Primary industries include food products, automotive components, fabricators, electronics, telecommunications, and distribution. The community is home to a State University and Technical College. In addition, this city has an excellent public school system. Despite a growing business and industry community, it proudly maintains its small-town charm. Many Victorian homes, tree-lined avenues, brick streets, and welcoming front porches have been preserved as reminders of our heritage. We offer visitors and citizens the conveniences of a big city with the character of a small, midwestern town. Extensive recreational opportunities are also available throughout the community.
