Join us on streets of golden wheat!
herzlich willkommen to Ellinwood!
Settled by German immigrants in 1870, Ellinwood, KS lies on the Santa Fe Trail. Ellinwood is located between Quivira Wildlife Refuge and Cheyenne Bottoms making it an easy drive for nature enthusiasts, bird watchers, and hunters.
When you arrive in this perfect little town, a tour of Ellinwood's Underground Tunnels is a must. Built under the town's buildings, sidewalks, and streets, the tunnels were home to a barbershop, a brewery, soiled doves, cowboys & gamblers. After the tour, shop our downtown shops, antique stores, and museum. Enjoy a meal at one of our locally-owned eateries and coffee shop. Call ahead and spend a relaxing night at our beautiful award-winning Historic Wolf Hotel and Events Center
Numerous attractions and rich German heritage are sure to delight. Plan a day trip to discover our many hidden treasures, including casual coffee shops, restaurants, an award-winning hotel, fishing spots, and so much more. You'll quickly fall in love with our small-town charm
Head to the streets of golden wheat for 50+ published garage sales in and around the area. Residents will be ready for you to shop.
