DescriptionAt the junction of I-70, US 40 and US 83, Oakley is a busy commercial center. It gained the county seat in the same manner as many early Kansas communities, winning over Russell Springs by only three votes—hardly the plurality required by law. Although the town is not named for the cowgirl entertainer, she did perform nearby with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. In tribute, Annie Oakley Park, 600 E. 5th St., offers walking trails, disc golf, a playground, a swimming pool, ball fields and picnic facilities.
