Larned Kansas, “Our Hometown”!
May 17, 2021
Welcome to the next community in the “Our Hometown” series, Larned Kansas.
The county seat of Pawnee County, Larned was built on the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad at the confluence of the Pawnee and the Arkansas Rivers. Named for nearby Fort Larned, it was laid out in December 1873 on land granted by Jerry Toles and John W. and Mary Adams.
Today, Larned is home to over 100 different types of businesses and some 4,200 residents. The city provides numerous celebrations throughout the year such as a living history weekend, Santa Fe Trail Days, and the Pawnee County Fair. During the summer, nearby Fort Larned also has many living history days in which volunteers reenact life on the Fort.
For the history buff, the nearby Santa Fe Trail Center and Fort Larned National Historic Site are “must-sees” while visiting the area.
Two other “must-sees” while in the Larned area are Ty Racette and David Snyder. Ty & David are both members of the FUMA Insurance team, serving the Larned community and the entire Pawnee County area.
