Spring Hill Kansas - Historic Downtown
Hours: Call for hours and events
The State of Kansas recognized this area for its significance to the community. The one-block district includes buildings built as early as 1896. The area was developed as the community's second downtown. In the early 1870s, the railroad was a greatly anticipated opportunity, but the Missouri River, Fort Scott and Gulf Railroad threatened to bypass Spring Hill if the town didn't cough up $15,000 to grade the land at the original town's site. Spring Hill residents declined to share the costs and proceeded to move the downtown district one-half mile east to meet the new rail line.Spring Hill also offers park and recreational fun! Any request for the use of the City Parks must be submitted in writing to the City Clerk.
