Welcome to Wallace County!

Welcome to Western Kansas!

Create your own history!

When you travel to Wallace County, you will follow ancient trails once  traced by buffalo hunters, gold-seekers, stagecoaches, steam engines and now massive combines. You will find the High Plains in its purest essence; and the sons of the homesteaders who survived its demands. You will find open skies, honest values and warm hearts.

VISIT the Fort Wallace Museum as it takes you back to the days of the “Fightin’est Fort in the West,” when the Northern and Southern Cheyenne, Kiowa and Arapahoe people struggled to defend their way of life against the wave of Westward expansion. An essential visit of your Wallace County journey!
