About Emporia

Emporia is a city in Lyon County, Kansas, USA. The population was 26,760 at the 2000 census. Emporia is located at the intersection of US-50, Interstate 335 and Interstate 35 on the Kansas Turnpike. It is the county seat of Lyon County.GR6


Emporia was founded in February 1857, drawing its name from ancient Carthaginian Africa.

Emporia is particularly known for its newspaper, the Emporia Gazette, published in the first half of the twentieth century by the legendary newspaperman William Allen White. The paper became the widely perceived model of excellence in small-town journalism.

In 1953, Emporia was the site of the first Veterans Day observance in the United States. At the urging of local shoe cobbler Alvin J. King, US Representative Ed Rees introduced legislation in The United States Congress to rename Armistice Day as Veterans Day. President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the bill into law on October 8, 1954.[1]

On June 8, 1974, an F4 tornado struck Emporia, killing six people, injuring 200 people, and causing $25 million in damages.[2]

It lies along the Kansas Turnpike at its intersection with Interstate 35 and U.S. Highway 50, 108 miles southwest of Kansas City, 58 miles southwest of Topeka, and 87 miles northeast of Wichita on the eastern edge of the Flint Hills.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 25.8 km² (10.0 mi²). 25.6 km² (9.9 mi²) of it is land and 0.2 km² (0.1 mi²) of it (0.60%) is water.

The city averages about 60 rainy days per year and 59 days with high temperatures of 90 °F (32 °C) or higher. The average temperature in January is 29 °F (-2 °C), and in July it is 79 °F (26 °C). Annual snowfall averages 10.2 inches (25.9 cm).[3]

The Neosho River flows along the northern side of the city. The Cottonwood River, one of its tributaries, flows along the city's southern edge and two large city parks, Peter Pan and Soden's Grove; the two rivers meet near the eastern boundary of Emporia and flow southeast to join the Arkansas River in Oklahoma.


In addition to Emporia State University, Emporia has several large employers.[4]
