Nestled among the rolling hills on the edge of the Kansas River, Bonner Springs is one of the oldest cities in the state of Kansas. In 1812, the Chouteau family established the first European trading post in the state.
This bustling trading post was called Four Houses, now the site of Bonner Springs. Between 1840 and 1865, steamboat traffic and the arrival of the railroads brought new people and commerce to the area. The name was changed to Tiblow in honor of Henry Tiblow, a Delaware Indian who operated the ferry across the Kansas River. It remained as Tiblow until Philo Clark platted the area in the 1880's and succeeded in renaming the entire town Bonner Springs.
"Bonner" was chosen to honor Clark's longtime friend Robert Bonner, editor of the New York City Ledger, and "Springs" was chosen because of the many natural springs in the community. Philo Clark became the first Mayor of Bonner Springs when the city incorporated in 1898.
