STOP... in beautiful Morton County
Located in the Southwest Corner of Kansas, is home to Elkhart, Rolla, Richfield, and Dermot communities. Elkhart, the county seat, is situated on the Oklahoma State line and approximately 8 miles East of Colorado. Morton County is a land of contrast and historical diversification. Thirty-three miles of the Historic Santa Fe Trail cross 108,000 acres of the Cimarron National Grassland. Today, one can still see ruts and the site where freight wagons camped at Middle Springs and used Point of Rocks
as a lookout point from 1821 to 1880.
STRETCH... in our friendly communities
Available for fun and relaxation is a nine-hole golf course, camping, fishing, hunting, hiking, bird watching, two outdoor swimming pools, and several beautiful parks and tennis courts. Enjoy some family fun at the Rolla Skating Rink or take in a movie at the historic Doric Theater in downtown Elkhart. Take a stroll through the Morton County Historical Society Museum that depicts the early days of Morton County when people lived in dugouts and attended one room school houses.
STAY... and enjoy yourself
Enjoy our local Retail Shops, Restaurants, Motels, Bed and Breakfast, and RV Parks. Whether you are driving through, visiting the area, or looking to relocate...
WELCOME TO MORTON COUNTY.
"Our only regret is not moving here sooner."
My wife Sharon and I moved to Elkhart from Tampa, FL in 2016. Sharon was a lifelong resident of Tampa and I had worked there for 25 years. The change has been drastic in culture, weather, language and pace. But we have found life here in Morton County to be an absolute delight, for all of those reasons. Living here affords us wide-open spaces and a unique beauty. The sunrise and sunsets are unparalleled and the seasons bring out the salt of the earth in various growth and harvest scenery. We have found the people of the area to be hard working and neighborly. It is by far the friendliest, most caring community I have ever experienced. There is always time to visit. We are never stuck in traffic. The schools are intimate and invested. The community support of activities, schools and each other is amazing. We have found a peace here, fewer distractions and much less frustration. This community is a real gem. Our only regret is not moving here sooner.
