Sedgwick County Homes in Sedgwick County

The community is steeped in history and lore of the cowboys and was historically a favored hunting and camping ground of Cheyenne, Sioux, Pawnee and Arapahoe Indians. A military reservation, Fort Sedgwick,  was established and the fort was expanded.  Original sod buildings were supplemented by both adobe and wood structures.  The soldiers guarded the important mail and passenger rode that followed the South Platte River.  Numerous military actions in the area are recorded in local history.  Though filmed elsewhere, “Fort Sedgwick” was prominent in the popular Hollywood movie Dances with Wolves.  No buildings remain on the site.
