From 1867-2019, Ellsworth boasts a thriving community that is full of rich heritage and history. From damaging floods to Wild Bill Hickock and Indian ravages to wild west gunfights and gambling halls, Ellsworth has prospered and flourished, and is proud to be a community that not only sustains, but continues to grow.
We celebrate and honor this heritage, and invite everyone to join in our celebration. We are proud to call this home, and forever know that "Abilene, the first; Dodge City, the last, but Ellsworth, the wickedest" is a phrase that represents our tenacity. From then to now, Ellsworth is a proud community with a welcoming spirit. So, please join us this August and help us celebrate!
