Living in Historic Delano

The historic clock tower in the Delano District

Located on the west bank of the Arkansas River at the end of the Chisholm Trail, the Historic Delano District was established as a place for cowboys to rest and relax after months on the trail driving cattle from Texas. Eventually incorporated into Wichita, Delano is now a thriving shopping district with more than 250 businesses. And, thanks to its proximity to downtown Wichita, the Delano District often participates in city activites like First Friday and Open Streets ICT.


A Rowdy History

While Delano is currently a family-oriented historic district, it once had a raunchy past fit for any old western. Named after Columbus Delano, Secretary of the Interior under President Ulysses S. Grant, Delano used to sit at the end of the of the Chisholm Trail and served as a haven for cowboys to unwind. Free of the ordinances and law enforcement in Wichita, trail riders could drink, gamble, and shoot their firearms off like fireworks. 


Local Landmarks

  • The Delano Clock Tower - The clock tower in the roundabout intersection of Douglas and Sycamore is tifdsatled "Window in Time" and was designed to be a link to Delano's history. Crafted by Kiv Yankey, a local Kansas artist, the four bas-relief art panels on the tower depict the development of Delano through its heyday. 
  • The Mulberry Tree - A very old Mulberry tree stands on the north edge of the Masonic Home property and used to signal to riders on the Chisholm Trail that they were nearing the end of the trail. 
  • Ben F. McLean Memorial Fountain
  • "Longhorn on the Chisholm Trail" sculpture
