Chetopa history:

On April 9, 2002, Chetopa was named the pecan capital of Kansas by Senator Dwayne Umbarger in Topeka.

Chetopa was founded in 1857 by Dr. George Lisle and received its name by an Osage village chief named Chetopah. Chetopa was destroyed on Nov. 19, 1863 by United States Army troops to prevent the property from falling into the hands of rebels. The city was rebuilt in the spring of 1866. Much more information can be found at our city museum.
