Brief Information About Wichita

Wichita is the largest city in Kansas . Located  at the confluence of the Arkansas and Little Arkansas rivers the city lies in the south-central part of the state.
 
The area was first settled by Wichita Indians, who came north from Texas and Oklahoma during the Civil War. At about the same time a number of trading posts were established at or near the river junction. One of the traders, Jesse Chisholm, pioneered the Chisholm Trail, which passed through Wichita .It was the main cattle-drive route from Texas to the railroad in Abilene. After the railroad was extended to Wichita in 1872, the city boomed first as a cow town.Laterit became  the trading center in an agricultural and livestock region. Although the city experienced an economic slump at the end of the 19th century, oil was discovered nearby in 1915, and  the population almost doubled subsequently.
