Founding city of veterans day

It’s all about pride in your hometown.

Emporia, Kansas is a small city with a big heart nestled in the beautiful Kansas Flint Hills. We want to share with you all the things that make our corner of the world special.

In our 155 year history, Emporia has created a national holiday, produced a world famous author, and built two national sporting events from the ground up. As home of the Teacher’s College at Emporia State University, we have generated legions of educators since the 1860’s, and we celebrate them with our National Teachers Hall of Fame.

It’s not just what we have, it’s who we are. We’re friends, families and neighbors living where heritage meets the future with grace and style.
