A city built on the proliferation of rail lines and the determination of its settlers to build an identity, Chanute is a community that has reinvented itself through the hardships of its early years to emerge as a family-oriented city proud of its heritage and with great expectations for the future. 

As the “Hub of Southeast Kansas,” Chanute enjoys some of the finest recreational, cultural and business opportunities in the state. The easygoing qualities of a small town are balanced by the prospects afforded by its central location to major cities.

With a rich history alive throughout the community, the character of Chanute reflects both its past and its present. With this in mind, joint efforts have restored the downtown business district to provide a boon to every aspect of life here. Over three million dollars were raised to save the historic Santa Fe Depot, buildings were restored and other facilities were moved to new homes. The city also purchased downtown property, removed vacant and dilapidated buildings and built a new pocket park to enhance the depot plaza area. 

Chanute’s master plan of historic restoration while improving and expanding facilities was successful in enhancing the quality of life and creating energy for future projects. Additionally, growth in amenities and industrycontinues to affirm that Chanute is a city ideal for healthy business and residential comforts.
