Brief Information About Arkansas City


Arkansas City is a city situated at the confluence of the Arkansas and Walnut rivers in the southwestern part of Cowley County. It is located in south-central Kansas. Its population at the 2010 census was 12,415. To avoid confusion over the name as well as for the sake for brevity, the city is often referred to as Ark City.

During early twentieth century, the city was a rival to Wichita in size and enterprise, with several busy rail lines, an opera house, many fine hotels, a manufacturing base and a bustling agricultural economy. In 1928, the city's official fall festival, Arkalalah, was inaugurated, which is still popular today.

Currently, one of the important employers in the city is state-of-the-art meat processor Creekstone Farms Premium Beef LLC which employs over 700 workers. A number of businesses are expanding or starting due to easy availability of workers. The Ark City Burford Theatre and Commercial Building is undergoing a renovation to tranform into new community arts center and gathering space.
