Anthony –History

Founded in 1878, Anthony was named for George T. Anthony, Governor of Kansas from 1876-1878.  Anthony is located 55 miles southwest of Wichita, surrounded by beautiful wheat fields in the heart of Kansas.

Rich in agriculture, Anthony was established on the edge of a beautiful valley on July 18, 1878, with a population of about 275. The petition to incorporate the city of Anthony was circulated on July 9, 1879, and the first election held in Anthony took place on July 19, 1879. Resulting from the election, the first Mayor of Anthony was Henry Holmes. The first Councilmen were: Jacob Hummel, G.W. Vickers, George P. Morgan, Simpson Van Winkle and David Hinsey. The first Police Judge was Jackson Brock, and the first appointed City Clerk was F.N. Hester.

As a new town, Anthony was known for having a high-quality water well for public use. From the Anthony Journal, August 22, 1878: "We challenge any town in the state to show a better public well than the one in Anthony. It is located in the center of the crossing of the two principal business streets, and it furnishes hundreds of gallons of pure and sparkling beverage to both man and beast."

Within the first few years of existence, Anthony was able to attract many different types of businesses. By 1880, Anthony had banking institutions, churches, schools, a hardware store, grocery store, drug store, acting physician/surgeon, proprietor, post office, butcher shop, blacksmith shop, court house, county-wide paper, saloon, furniture store, bakery, lawyer office, real estate office, general contractors, carpenter shop and a masonry shop. Anthony continues to thrive today.

In August of 1880, the City purchased its first piece of property - an area to build a jail (back then called a calaboose) next to the previously built County Courthouse - for $90. This jail was built of red rock and was located at the corner of Steadman and Bluff. In 1905, the County Courthouse - built of homemade brick and native soft red sandstone - began to disintegrate. Growing concerns for the building mounted, resulting in a county-wide Special Election on May 21, 1907. The voters approved the issuance of bonds for a new building. The building, which still stands today, was completed in September of 1908. The first marriage to take place in the County Courthouse occurred on September 16, 1908, between Pearl Mishler and Clint Parker, with Judge McPhee presiding.
