DescriptionLocal legend has it that Spanish explorer Francisco Vásquez de Coronado camped in the area during his 16th-century trek west in search of the Seven Golden Cities of Cíbola. More than 3 centuries later the land was occupied by the Osage Indians, with the first European settlers arriving during the 1860s.
Present day Winfield remembers soldiers of all wars in Memorial Park at 401 E. Ninth St. The Vietnam War Memorial, a replica of the memorial wall in Washington, D.C., is among the monuments in the park. A directory lists the names of the 777 Kansans who lost their lives during that war.
