Wilson County is home to around 9,000 Kansans and stretches across 574 square miles in southeastern Kansas.  Created in 1855 within the Osage Reserve, the first white settlers began arriving in 1857.  It is named in honor of Col. Hiero T. Wilson (1806-1892), sutler, postmaster, and prominent citizen of Fort Scott, beginning in 1843. The county seat is located in Fredonia.
