The history of Leavenworth

Established as the first incorporated city in Kansas in 1854, Leavenworth began its life as an Army outpost in 1827 by a colonel of the same name. That frontier fort has evolved over the years to become the Combined Arms Center, the Intellectual Center of the Army, the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, and the Mission Command Center of Excellence. Most widely known as the location of the Leavenworth Prison which serves the military, Leavenworth is also served as a freedom stop in the Underground Railroad. You can visit Leavenworth's history through its museums such as the Fort Leavenworth, the CW Parker Carousel and the Fred Harvey. With a historic Downtown bordering the Missouri River, Leavenworth offers a walk through fascinating stores, restaurants and attractions surrounded by natural beauty.
