Morton County is situated in the southwestern part of the state of Kansas and was officially established on February 20, 1886. It was named in honor of Oliver Hazard Perry Throck Morton, a prominent United States Senator from Indiana who also served as the 14th Governor of Indiana during the American Civil War. Its county seat and largest city is Elkhart.

Before its establishment, the area was initially settled by pioneers and ranchers attracted to its fertile grasslands. Over time, these settlers shifted towards farming and other pursuits, resulting in the growth and development of the region. With the construction of the infamous Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad in the 19th century, Morton County saw significant progress, attracting businesses and entrepreneurs from across the country.

A fun fact about Morton County is that it is home to the Cimarron National Grassland, which spans 108,176 acres and is the largest area of public land in the state of Kansas. The grassland provides a diverse habitat for various species of flora and fauna, as well as offering opportunities for recreation like hiking, wildlife viewing, and horseback riding. The Santa Fe Trail, a significant trade route during the 19th century, traverses the Cimarron National Grassland, making the region a historically significant location in the American westward expansion.
