Wellington, home of the Kansas Wheat Festival, has had public power, its sign says, since 1901. The town is home to several county vehicle and tool shops, as well as the noxious weed department. There's a big grain elevator, and the houses are generally neat and well-maintained, though there's not a lot of new construction.
We stopped at Dillon's for a snack and noticed a neat walking path down by the railroad tracks. Wellington is a pretty large town with many businesses, an airport, and a lake.
We'd like to come back sometime for the wheat festival!
