Established in 1873, our small rural Kansas town has been embedded with a rich history of flourishing businesses and hometown pride. As with any agricultural-based town, Larned has faced many limitations for resources and financial stability. Small business owners do not have a great selection to entice downtown traffic due to an array of run-down vacant buildings. We envision our main street to be full of community efforts such as providing more unique shopping experiences, a variety of exquisite eateries, and a place for all artists to love. We plan to "paint the town", beautify our architectural accents with florals, purchase hanging street lights for nighttime events and to make as many buildings we can available for entrepreneurs. Please accept our invitation to help Larned create an atmosphere that will endure for many centuries forward.
