Leavenworth, known as the ‘First City in Kansas’ was founded in 1854. Leavenworth was built largely to support Fort Leavenworth, which was founded in 1827 and the settlers which were heading west. The City was home to freight companies, meat packers, stove makers and furniture manufacturers. As the city grew, factories and businesses flourished and stately homes were built to house the families whose wealth grew as the city grew. Leavenworth was the industrial center of Kansas and of the west.
With a population of approximately 35,000, Leavenworth sits in the rolling hills of northeastern Kansas on the Missouri River and is conveniently located on the outskirts of the Kansas City metropolitan area.
Leavenworth is a small-town with historic atmosphere and a modern community. With the convenience and easy access to the amenities of a larger city within a minutes’ drive, Leavenworth truly is the perfect place to live.
