Maize, Kansas: History and Fun Facts
The area around Maize was first settled by J.K. Steele and his wife Anna in 1870. They, and the other pioneers of Maize, came despite the presence of the Osage Indians, who were the original occupants of the region and were not yet completely willing to give up the land. In the 1860s, only a few miles from what would be Maize, these Indians killed the first white settler to Sedgwick County, John Ross, and in 1867 the Osage had conducted a series of raids in Kansas reacting to the building of the Union Pacific railroad.
However, these pioneers remained, and on February 1st, 1886, William A. Williams became the first postmaster of the new Maize, Kansas. The town was located in Section 19, Range 1 of the Park Township in Sedgwick County. It was founded as the first stop out of Wichita on the Wichita and Colorado railway under the auspices of the Missouri Pacific railroad company.
Famous Maize People & Fun Facts: Kansas has the largest population of wild grouse in North America. The grouse is commonly called the prairie chicken. Bet you didn’t know that? Maize comes from the Indian word for corn – so it’s not a surprise that there’s a town in Kansas: Maize. Poet Edgar Lee Masters and actress Hattie McDaniel and psychiatrist William C. Menninger all hail from nearby to Maize, KS.
