Welcome to Alma, KS
Welcome to the "City of Native Stone", a small community nestled in the heart of the Flint Hills, with a population of less than a 1,000 people. We are, however, a growing city and offer a great lifestyle for young and old, single and married, families with children and those without.
Alma was settled in 1858 by the Swedes, the English, the Irish, and the Germans, whose heritage is still very strong. Their Teutonic names are still very prominent among many of our residents. Prior to 1858 the town had been settled by the Pottawatomie Tribe.
We have excellent opportunities for those that enjoy the outdoor life with the countryside having abundant wildlife such as quail, prairie chicken, and deer. In addition we are within a 40 mile drive to three of our main area lakes which offer excellent camping, both RV and tent, as well as fishing and hiking. Alma is also part of the Scenic Mill Creek Drive and Native Stone Scenic Drive. Both offer beautiful views of the rolling Flint Hills.
The commute to Fort Riley, Junction City, Manhattan and Topeka is relatively easy, with the main highway (I-70) being approximately 3 miles from town.
Alma is proud to be the Wabaunsee County seat. For more information on Wabaunsee County see the Wabaunsee County Economic Development's web site at www.wabaunsee.com.
