DescriptionMidway along the Santa Fe Trail where Pawnee Creek joins the Arkansas River, the settlement of Larned emerged as the construction of the Santa Fe Railway neared Fort Larned. As the military usefulness of the fort declined, the attractiveness of the fertile agricultural lands became apparent, allowing Larned to develop into the prosperous trading center and county seat it is today.
