Cheyenne County


Cheyenne County is the most northwestern county in the great state of Kansas. We are a frontier rural community with a population density under 3 and a population of 2,665 based on the most recent United States Census.

The county is home to two main cities: Bird City with 536 residents and St. Francis with 1,421 citizens. The balance of the county’s population is located in rural country homes, farms, or ranches.

We have a proud agriculture-based heritage with producers of wheat, corn, beef, poultry, pork, and other commodities. Western Kansas is home to some of the most beautiful prairie in the state of Kansas with sunsets and sunrises that, in our humble opinion, just can’t be beat.

The county is abundant with wildlife including deer, pheasants, turkeys, and quail. Archers and hunters enjoy our landscapes during hunting seasons.

We’re proud to host two school districts (USD 297 and USD 103) that provide quality education for our youth both with successful athletics programs.

Our county has a comprehensive heath care system including: a critical access hospital with a level 4 trauma center, a patient-centered medical home rural health care clinic including a mental health clinic, county health department providing all types of immunizations, home health services, a skilled nursing facility, and 24×7 ambulance service including community paramedicine and health coach services.
