You're about to unearth a host of treasures within our 649 acres. From corner to corner, Labette County is filled with beautiful, golden wheat swaying in the wind. The Neosho River ambles slowly over the dam, with its wooded side streams that evoke the natural wilds of Kansas past. Cowboys still herd cattle from horseback, brand herds, and show off their lassoing skills in area rodeos. Fishermen, protected by tight-fitting hip boots, wade into cold streams to patiently await their catch.
Our county is Kansas official capital for a variety of things: Parsons owns this title for the diving purple martins that return year after year. Chetopa has been declared the "Catfish Capital of Kansas." Oswego is the "Arts Capital of Kansas."
Everywhere you look, a stone wall or a building holds secrets of the past within its foundation. And, our future offers another hearty promise: a guarantee that no matter what life hands us, citizens in Labette County will prevail with their generous spirits intact. Were glad you have chosen to play a role in that positive tomorrow.
