Kingman County, Kansas U.S. Census TIGER/Line map

Kingman County, Kansas, is known for its fertile red soil and rolling hills. Its principal crop in the 1950s was wheat and there was also a considerable amount of grazing land. The total population of the county in 1957 was over 12,000. There were two General Conference Mennonite churches in Kingman County—Bethany Mennonite Church, southeast of Kingman, organized in 1907, and the Zion Mennonite Church in Kingman, which was organized in 1929. In addition, the camp of the Western District young people, Camp Mennoscah, was located there, on the Ninnescah River west of Murdock.
