Hutchinson    

Midwest Superstore is proud to call Hutchinson, Kansas, home. Hutchinson is a wonderful city located on the Kansas Prairie, where residents and visitors alike are guaranteed fun for the whole family.

History

Hutchinson was founded in 1871 as a settlement at a railroad crossing over the Arkansas River. The town grew slowly, with the local salt beds becoming a major industry in the area and prompting the city's nickname of "Salt City." Over time, the area also became known for its wheat farming and having some of the richest oil fields in the Midwest. These industries continue to this day.

Community

Today, Hutchinson is home to more than 42,000 residents and boasts a number of modern attractions. From hosting the NJCAA Men's Basketball Championship to being home to an internationally acclaimed space museum, the town's diversity makes for a vibrant scene to explore your interests.

Things to do

Hutchinson is known for its renowned cultural institutions, entertainment opportunities, tons of locally owned restaurants and shops, and plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities. Here are a few spots we recommend:

·         Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center: The world-class Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Museum offers the largest collection of American and Russian spaceflight artifacts in the world, drawing all those interested in the history of space exploration.

·         Strataca - Kansas Underground Salt Museum: Strataca is Hutchinson's salt mine museum that offers a one-of-a-kind experience. The museum stands within one of the largest rock salt deposits in the world and presents visitors with the opportunity to venture 650 feet beneath Earth's surface.

·         Kansas State Fair: Every year, the Kansas State Fair takes place in Hutchinson for 10 days, beginning on the Friday after Labor Day.

·         Indian Creek Bison Ranch: For a glimpse into what life was like on the American Prairie, head to the Indian Creek Bison Ranch. While there, you can marvel at a herd of almost fifty bison and learn about the species' history in the region.
