Welcome to the Wilson County website.
Wilson County is home to around 10,000 Kansans, and stretches across well over 574 square miles in Southeast Kansas. Organized in 1855, our county originally extended to the south line of the state, and was named in honor of Colonel Hiero T. Wilson who lived in Fort Scott from September 1843. He was the first white person to settle here. The County Seat is Fredonia.
"Our mission is to provide the infrastructure needed to serve the needs of our citizens, and to protect our environment and promote safety and well-being in order to build economic strength for now and future generations."
