Hutchinson, KS

With a population of approximately 41,000, Hutchinson is the largest city in Reno County, Kansas (as well as the county seat), and is the 10th-largest city in the state. It is located 39 miles northwest of Wichita, near the Arkansas River. The city is known as the Salt City because it was built over large salt deposits, and salt has been a major industry Hutchinson.

Founded in 1871, Hutchinson was once called Temperance City because its founder was determined that only those of "high moral fiber" should live there. No liquor was to be served within the city limits, which kept Hutchinson from developing the rowdier aspects of other Kansas towns. Because of the liquor ban, many Amish and Mennonite settlers were drawn to the community. Today the Amish have a settlement in Yoder, Kansas, which is just nine miles from Hutchinson. The ban on alcohol ended in 1876, but the community has retained its quiet atmosphere even after the ban was lifted.

Compared with the national average, Hutchinson has very little traffic, so the typical commute to work for Hutchinson residents is around 15 minutes.
