Strong City Travel Guide: 22 reviews and 43 photos

When Strong City was first established in 1871 it was called Cottonwood Station, being only two miles north of the county seat in Cottonwood, Kansas. The new community sprang up at the point to which the new Santa Fe Railroad was completed.

A decade later, in 1881, the name of Cottonwood Station was changed to Strong, honoring the superintendent and later president of the Santa Fe Railway System, William Barstow Strong. The word "City" was added to Strong in 1945.

Today Strong City is a sleepy little town at the junction of US-54 and KS-177. Major industries are the railroad, limestone quarrying, and ranching.
