A Quick History of Edwardsville, KS

Edwardsville was part of the frontier inhabited by the Delaware Indians when they were moved here from eastern states taken by the government in the 1820s. When fur and other tradespeople used the Missouri River to travel to the area, Edwardsville was part of the prairie that was settled by pioneers looking to benefit from the land and commercial opportunities. In 1869, the area was surveyed and named after John H. Edwards who worked in the railroad industry before becoming the justice of the peace and a state senator. The town stayed under 700 people until the 1970s when urban sprawl sparked development in the Kansas City metro areas. The population jumped to 3,300 during that time. Although it sits on 9 square miles, since then, Edwardsville has only increased by around 1,000 residents. People of the town can utilize the offerings of nearby larger cities while enjoying the peaceful scenery of their quiet community.
