About Us:

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...


She got here as fast as she could

A former Kansas City Chiefs cheerleader who has become a very spirited supporter of our little hamlet. Originally from California, our little cheerleader was looking for a change. A special place she could call her forever home. She often remarks that "she wasn't born in Elkhart but she got here as fast as she could"! As she headed out for a new beginning she only had a couple of requirements for her new home. #1 - she needed to have access to high-speed internet since she would be working from home. And #2 - there could be NO stop lights in the town. Just a simple gal with simple needs. Thank goodness Syracuse has a stop light or our little cheerleader may have pulled in and become a Hamilton County resident. But she kept rolling south looking to check off her list of requirements. Just happens that as she rolled into Elkhart (with no stop lights in sight) she was met with a "sign" advertising high speed-internet printed on the windows of Epic Touch. This surely had to be the place she could call home; Elkhart had ticked off both of her required boxes.
