  Brief History from Kansas State Historical Society:

 Geary County was one of the first 33 counties organized by the Territorial Legislature in 1855. Most of the earliest settlers
 were soldiers and officers at Fort Riley. Colonel William Montgomery organized the town of Pawnee which is now on the
 military reservation. Thomas Reynolds settled near Ogden. Two army officers, Robert Wilson and Abram Barry incorporated
 the town of Junction City about 1855. The county was originally named Davis after the then (1855) Secretary of War,
 Jefferson Davis.  In 1889 the name was changed to Geary for John White Geary, the third territorial governor of Kansas.
 Geary contains the towns of Grandview Plaza, Junction City and Milford.

 The establishment of Fort Riley in 1852, has been the major influence on the county since its inception to today. It is currently
 the home of the U.S. Army's First Division.

Some of the files linked to in the below areas are somewhat large pdf  files.  They may take some time to load. 
  I have split some pdf files into multiple files in an attempt to improve the load speed.
