Founded: 1885 , Pop.: 551 (2000), Elev.: 1,490 ft.
Located in the SE corner of Kingman County, on Hwy K-42 and 3 mi. west of Suppesville (where K-42 and K-2 divide). The 3 towns of Norwich, Suppesville and Milton, are so close that there is a "tri-cities" community feeling.
Norwich is close to Wichita to the E and Kingman to the NW. Commuters work in these larger communities while enjoying life in a small town. Local schools are strong (and new), plus a new library that is jointly run by the school system and the city.
The surrounding farms and ranches, the beauty of the location and the arrival of the railroad made it apparent to early arrivals that the site selected was a good place for a town. Much of the county is grassland covering red sand. One fork of the Ninnescah river wends its way across the N part of the county and the Chikaskia River crosses the S part. Tradition has it that there was only one tree in the county when the earliest settlers arrived.
