Derby, Kansas: History and Fun Facts
“Eloise, what is the population figure as of today” (October 1967) “Seven-thousand, five hundred, and eight-two,” was the prompt reply from an aide for the City Clerk of one of Kansas' most aggressive communities – Derby. Such is the case in running a business as vibrant as “A City on the Move.”
Derby has experienced one of the most fantastic growth pangs of any city in Kansas – mushrooming twenty-five times its population of the early 1950's. And surprising enough her growth was not certain, even though Derby is within clear view of metropolitan Wichita's major boons: McConnell Air Force Base and the huge Boeing, Beech and Cessna aircraft companies.
The developers of Derby diligently planned their city's growth, and are constantly reviewing, revamping, and re-evaluating the growth patterns. It wasn't too many years ago that her 300-or-so inhabitants had no central water and sewage systems. This was as late as 1950. Of course, public utilities are a must in modern society, and the people of Derby realized if they were to grow they would have to provide not only these conveniences but police and fire protection, excellent schools, streets, parks, and recreation.
Providing a family with modern suburbia living became Derby's number one industry. She has done it with relatively few fulltime employees and many hundreds of residents voluntarily contributing to the development of a community in which they take pride.
