Historic Downtown Wellington

Downtown Historic Wellington is looking forward to a renaissance in the community. In 2016 there were 9 properties that had an upgrade to their facade. Historic Downtown Wellington is a part of the Sumner County Neighborhood Revitalization program. And properties that are over 50 years old and that are included in the formal "Downtown Historic District" recognized by the Kansas Historical Society have the opportunity of being in the program for not just 5, but 10 years. Building owners should contact the Sumner County Appraisers Office before starting any work on the building - interior exterior.  Anyone can review the list of properties included in the official Downtown Historic District. More information can be found by reviewing the 92 page document that is the National Register of Historic Places - Downtown Wellington Historic District Application. The Sumner County Historical and Geneological Society and the Chisholm Trail Muesum have historical documention of downtown properties.

Not included in the historic district are many historic homes in the Wellington area. The Sumner County Historical and Geneological Society and the Chisholm Trail Muesum also have great notes of historic homes in the Wellington and Sumner County area.
