A City of Many Names

First developed in 1854 by Andrew J. Mead of New York, the area now known as Junction City was once called Manhattan. After the planned community could not be reached by boat due to the low waters of the Kansas River, it was renamed Millard City for the captain that finally made his way into the area. A name change took place once again in 1857 when farmers living on the land changed it to Humboldt. That same year, the final name change took place and in 1859 Junction City was finally incorporated.

An Evening on the Tow

If an evening of culture and entertainment are on your list of things to do, a visit to the C.L. Opera House should be in order. The opera house was first built in the late 1800s and has seen many restorations and a host of different name changes. Currently, the opera house hosts scheduled events, including opera performances and other live entertainment shows. Another great place for entertainment is the Junction City Arts Center. The council offers a variety of classes and special events, such as a murder mystery dinner and various local concerts.
