Founded: 1885, Population: 1738, Elevation: 3305 feet. Leoti, (County Seat), is located in Wichita County. Leoti is located at the intersection of highways K-96 and K-25. The downtown area features brick-inlaid sidewalks, park benches, and beautiful trees and flower planters. The attractive white-columned Wichita County Courthouse is a couple of blocks south of Broadway (K-96). Leoti is famous as one of the participants in the bloodiest county seat fight in the history of Kansas. The Leoti-Coronado county seat fight was chronicled in the New York Times. Obviously, Leoti won and Coronado eventually became a ghost town.

Two parks, a swimming pool, golf course, library, museum, fitness center, youth center and a large quantity of pheasants and deer provide plenty of recreation and hunting opportunities for all ages. Community sponsored sports include T-ball, basketball, softball, Little League baseball, wrestling, and soccer.
