A warm hello … a neighborly smile … watching the beauty of a prairie sunset, or enjoying the peacefulness of a starry evening — you know that Edwards County is the place to call home. The Kansas prairie holds this caring community in the palms of its hands. Located just two hours from Interstate 70, it’s halfway between New York City and San Francisco. Edwards County embraces the future, while remembering its past. 100 years ago, German, Swedish, and Danish immigrants came by railroad and settled this area’s wide-open spaces with a progressive and dedicated heart.
