McFarland

McFarland offers a lovely residential area, Community Action Headstart and easyMcFarland Depot-access to great schools, churches and businesses.  Well-situated along Interstate 70 between Manhattan, Wamego and Topeka- just minutes away to regional employment and service centers!

The history and pattern of McFarland is the same of many small towns in Kansas.  It came to exist because of the railroad and has experienced boom and bust.  McFarland was founded in 1887 by S.R. Fairfield.  McFarland was incorporated in 1903.  The town was platted at the Rock Island Railroad point where the rail branched northwest to Denver and the Pacific coast, as well branching southwest toward the Gulf of Mexico.  Railroad activity peaked in the 1920’s then began to dwindle in the 1950’s as railroad facilities were reduced in town.  Although there is little business in McFarland, this small bedroom community is actually seeing a population increase in recent years.

Please drive through and consider this small town for your home or even small business!  It’s a nice, quiet town and home to 253 people!

The newly formed, McFarland PRIDE is busy putting together a schedule of events - continue checking back to stay informed! McFarland PRIDE has had a busy begining!
