  Brief History from Kansas State Historical Society:

 Clinton Carter Hutchinson; Lewis M. Thomas; John Hart; J. H. D. Rosan; and Charles Street organized Reno County on
 January 1, 1872. The city of Hutchinson was incorporated on August 15, 1872. Pretty Prairie, Arlington, Partridge,
 Willowbrook, Haven, Langdon, Buhler, Turon, Nickerson, Plevna, South Hutchinson, Sylvia and Abbyville are also cities in
 the county. The county was named for Major General Jesse Lee Reno, Union army, killed in the Battle of South Mountain in

 The first organized church was the Hutchinson Methodist established in 1872. The first church building was the Hutchinson
 Presbyterian constructed in 1873. Hutchinson, the home of the official State Fair, established a county fair about 1873. The
 first school was formed in 1864 while Reno County was still part of Marion County. School District 1, established in
 Hutchinson in 1872, covered the entire county.

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.
