Herington, Kansas

Herington, Kansas

Herington has a vital and invigorating atmosphere in which to work and play. There are still many old fishing holes to be found where your everyday troubles are not permitted to enter. For the more serious sportsman there is Herington Reservoir and within a thirty minute drive there are three more reservoirs and several lakes, providing a relaxed lifestyle without the necessity of having to "Get away form it all."

We are a town of approximately 2,500 neighbors located in the corner of a three county area, at the crossroads of two major highways, U.S. 56 and U.S.77, giving easy access for all shipping and touring.
