CALDWELL--Sumner County
The second city in point of population in the county, and soon to rank first in commercial importance. Located near the southwest corner of the county, and near the line dividing Kansas and the Indian Territory, and in the best agricultural portion of Sumner, the banner county of Kansas, as shown by the reports of State officers. Caldwell was organized as a village, or city of the third class, in 1879, with the bare number necessary to receive recognition--and some of her detractors claim that her citizens imported for the occasion a few unwashed Indians and voted them. Now she has a bona fide population of 3,000 industrious, sober, educated, refined Christian men, women and children. The location of Caldwell was a happy selection, being on a high, rolling prairie, commanding a beautiful view into the Indian Territory, the high bluffs, and skirtage of timber along Bluff, Fall and Casino Creeks, which lie south and east of the city. It is also favored with excellent railroad conveniences, being the junction of the Caldwell branch of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe with the St Louis and San Francisco and the Chicago, Kansas and Nebraska Railway.
