City of Mulvane

Founded 1879
Population 6,111

Mulvane, Kansas is located on the county line between Sumner and Sedgwick counties, 20 minutes from Wichita and 15 minutes from McConnell Air Force Base.  The City was founded in 1879 as a railroad/agricultural community and became a member of the Kansas Power Pool in 2012.  The name Mulvane was selected for the City after deciding that Joab Mulvane was inspirational in developing the City.  Mulvane is a progressive city with officials and community members alike, donating their time for the betterment of the community.  There’s something for everyone from schools to assisted living, for your education, health, and fun.

Mulvane celebrated its centennial in 1979. Its history dates back to the opening of Indian Territory for settlement in 1869. Families began to pour into the new territory and by 1872 all land was claimed before the town was founded. Prior to the town’s incorporation, the citizens celebrated their good fortune in coming to this area. In August 1873, Jessie Bowles invited all his neighbors and friends to a harvest picnic. This was the beginning of the oldest annual celebration in the state of Kansas: Old Settlers’ Day. The Old Settler Days celebration has grown every year since and is eagerly anticipated each August.
