Sumner County takes its name from Hon. Charles Sumner, of Massachusetts, whose services to his country are so recent as to yet be fresh in all minds. The county lies in the southern tier, on what was Indian land for many years after much of Kansas was thickly settled. Cutting three miles from the southern part of the present county ran the Cherokee strip, the pathway of the tribe to their western hunting grounds.1

Organized in 1873. County seat Wellington. In honor of Charles Sumner, the distinguished Massachusetts Senator.2
