 Dodge City, Ford County Directory
transcribed by Sheryl McClure


A town of 3,000 inhabitants, on the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad, and Chicago. Kansas and Nebraska Railway (St. Joseph and Iowa Railroad Co lessees), 353 miles from the Missouri River. An incorporated company have built an irrigating ditch 96 miles in length, which waters a large area of land that has produced satisfactory results to the farmer, while the agricultural interest in the county of Ford is increasing (which will be a banner county in the near future). The cattle men are improving their vast herds, which are still numerous. The Arkansas River flows through the city, dividing the two railroads. Dodge City is blessed with schools, churches, societies, banks and fire department (which is a credit to any city), and splendid water works.
