El-Dorado is located in Butler County along the Walnut River in south-central Kansas. The estimated population is 13,000 residents. It is the county seat and most populous city of Butler County. El Dorado was founded 1871 and became known as "Oil Town" due to one of the largest underground oil reserves in the United States, which was pooled in the ground below the town. Today, El Dorado is a progressive, diverse community located on the edge of the beautiful Flint Hills in southern Kansas. The town is home to fine museums, antique shops, historic spots and outdoor recreation. Attractions include the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, the Butler County History Center & Kansas Oil Museum and the Coutts Memorial Museum of Art. Historic sites include the Missouri Pacific Railroad Depot, the 1940s McDonald Baseball Stadium, the Butler County Courthouse and the Carnegie Library. El Dorado is also a city of the arts, with a collection of 16 sculptures found throughout the downtown area, by renowned local and regional artists. Outdoor recreation can be found at El Dorado Lake & State Park, located just northeast of town. This is Kansas largest state park, offering 8,000 acres for camping, boating, fishing, and nature trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding.

El Dorado Weather & Climate

Southern Kansas has an annual mean temperature almost as high as that of Virginia, more sunshine than that of any state to the east, and generous summer rains which, in the eastern counties, average heavier than those of other states, except a few along the Gulf Coast. The State lies across the path of alternate masses of warm moist air moving north from the Gulf of Mexico and currents of cold, comparatively dry, air moving from the polar regions. Consequently, its weather is subject to frequent, severe changes, usually of short duration. Winters are cold but drier than many Eastern states. Summers are hot, with relatively mild humidity and good wind movement, which helps moderate temperatures.
