Winfield Celebrates 150 years!

FUN FACT: Winfield was founded in 1870 then incorporated as a city in 1873 and was named for Rev. Winfield Scott, who promised to build the town a church in exchange for the naming rights. 

Located among the rolling Flint Hills of south-central Kansas, Winfield enjoys a lovely natural setting in the Walnut River Valley. The main street is decorated with big blooming flower baskets that hang from the light posts and curb flower gardens grace the streets. During the colder months festive holiday lights bring joy during the holidays. Rich with community activities, music festivals, and colorful murals it's full of small town charm, from its downtown to its “Fortune 500” companies. The community considers itself part of the global economy and strives to keep a warm, small-town feel. Though Winfield has a history of enterprise and education, it is the community’s charm that often captures visitors. 

An architectural treasure, Winfield has many classical Victorian homes with turrets, towers, curved verandas, classic porches and delicate millwork — as lovely as they are historically important. Lovers of architecture are also drawn to the historic homes along Memorial Park, the four bank buildings at the intersection of Ninth Avenue and Main Street, and the buildings of the former St. John’s College, now Baden Square.

Winfield has a city-manager form of government, with three commissioners elected at large, one of whom serves as a rotating mayor.
