Founded: 1866, Population (year 2000): 2,728, Elevation: 853 feet. Tonganoxie, or "Tongie", as it is fondly referred to by its residents, is a friendly little city located in Leavenworth County, in the Northeast Region of Kansas, between Kansas City and Lawrence.

A growing community with all the advantages of close proximity to a major urban center and a large university town. They remain far enough removed to retain a distinctive small town flavor and attitude.

Tonganoxie was named after a Delaware Indian, Chief Tonganoxie. The Chief Tonganoxie Lodge, which was built in 1835, was a stopover for mail and passengers traveling through the area. Eventually, the government took over the land and sold it to the Union Pacific Railroad.
