USDA Boundary Details

Sumner County is located in south-central Kansas and was officially established on February 7, 1867. It is named after Charles Sumner, a U.S. Senator from Massachusetts, who was a noted abolitionist and proponent of civil rights. The county was established during the Reconstruction Era, a time when newly freed African Americans began to migrate to Kansas in search of greater opportunity, giving the state its nickname, "Free-State."

The development of Sumner County was significantly influenced by the railroad systems that expanded through Kansas during the late 19th century. In particular, the county benefited from the establishment of the Wellington and Sumner County Railroad and the construction of the Southern Kansas Railway. These railroads enabled the transportation of goods and people, contributing to the growth of the region's agricultural and cattle industries.

The town of Wellington serves as the county seat, and over the years, several other towns have emerged, such as Caldwell, Belle Plaine, and Oxford. Agriculture remains a vital component of the local economy, with wheat farming as a particular focus. In fact, Sumner County is often called the "Wheat Capital of the World" due to its extensive wheat production.

A fun fact about Sumner County is that it is home to the Kansas Wheat Festival, which is held annually in Wellington. The festival celebrates the harvest and recognizes the importance of wheat farming by featuring activities such as the wheat harvest competitions, parades, concerts, and a variety of family-friendly events.
