Kansas Counties
  • William G. Cutler's History of the State of Kansas - was first published in 1883 by A. T. Andreas, Chicago, IL. This site has a history of each county in existence at the time.
  • Kansas County Profile Reports - Statistical data from The Institute for Policy and Social Research, the University of Kansas
  • United States Census Bureau's Kansas Quickfacts
AT - Atchison County - Atchison SG - Sedgwick County - Wichita AL - Allen County - Iola AN - Anderson County - Garnett  
Kansas currently has 105 counties.
NOTE: We are working to convert all 105 county pages from their previous home on Blue Skyways to their original home on Kansas on the Net. This process is expected to take a long time but eventually you will be able to visit each one by clicking on the map or from the list under the map.
