Leavenworth is the largest city in Leavenworth County, situated in the rolling hills of northeast Kansas. It sits along the west bank of the Missouri River. As of the 2000 census, the population of Leavenworth was 35,420 residents. Founded in 1854, Leavenworth was the first incorporated city in the state of Kansas. The city is located south of Fort Leavenworth, which is the the oldest active Army post west of the Mississippi River. Leavenworth is the site of many detention centers and prisons, including the Leavenworth federal prison which the city is most famous for, and several smaller jails and prisons. Its also home to the University of Saint Mary, operated by the Sisters of Charity. Leavenworth has a Historic Riverfront Downtown that offers shopping, restaurants and hotels in a friendly, hometown atmosphere. Other attractions include the C.W. Parker Carousel Museum, the Carroll Mansion and the Richard Allen Cultural Center. Historically, Leavenworth served as a springboard for the settlement of the West. The town was built largely to support the Fort, which was founded in 1827, and for settlers heading further west. As the city grew, factories and businesses flourished and stately homes were built and Leavenworth became the industrial center of Kansas. The city has a historic walking and driving tour commemorating the notable events and locations in the community.
