Jump to navigation Jump to search

Inman, Kansas (population 600 in 1955; population 1,222 in 2002), a village located in McPherson County in the central part of the state, was founded in 1887, soon after the Rock Island railway was built, and was called Aiken. This was changed to Inman the following year.

Approximately 1,500 Mennonites lived near and in Inman in the 1950s, perhaps 25 per cent of them in town. They owned and operated about half of the businesses. The groups represented were the Church of God in Christ, Mennonite, General Conference Mennonite Church, Krimmer Mennonite Brethren, Mennonite Brethren Church, and Mennonite Church. There were six Mennonite churches in the community. Cooperatively they sponsored a home for the aged in Inman with rooms for 18 residents.
