Grow with our flow.

Junction City/Geary County was born on the move at a critical intersection of place and time. The place: The headwaters of the Kansas River, where the Smoky Hill and Republican Rivers converge. The time: The 1850s, as pioneers began heading west.  Fort Riley was established in 1853 and home to the 7th Cavalry and later the U.S. Cavalry School. Speaking of time, straight-talking city founders wasted little of it, christening Junction City in 1857.   As the swelling current of settlers flowed through the Santa Fe Trail, Junction City was the trade center for the pioneers traveling west. Now we gallop ahead, from the dashing cavalry, the controversial Custer, the barrier-breaking Buffalo Soldiers, and to the legendary “Big Red One”, all charged full speed into the making of our nation and the modern world.

Accelerated access: Today, Junction City/Geary County stays on the move with strategic logistics including Union Pacific rail service and five exits off Interstate-70 insuring ease, speed, and flow that enriches both life and work. The center of America location, and the Manhattan Regional Airport only 14 miles away, nationwide reach by auto, rail, or air make us a strategic choice for business and families.

Foot Locker, footloose: While our easy-access, high-flow central location has attracted leading brand distribution centers for companies like Foot Locker, families enjoy the footloose freedom in national and regional travel. Yet for all the ease of movement, we’re also a place where people love to put down roots. Our children thrive in award-winning schools, our economy stays strong, bolstered by our position as home to Fort Riley and  global leading industry. There is always plenty to enjoy right here with Junction City/Geary County’s fabulous year-round recreation, civic celebrations, and a packed calendar of arts and culture—not to mention exciting NCAA Division I athletics—just 14 miles away.

We were born at the  confluence of two rivers forming the Kansas River—and now we are moving ahead at the junction of a storied past and an unlimited future. Come grow with our flow in Junction City/Geary County.
