History & History Related Items

Salina history:

The area was first settled in 1856 but the community was not officially founded until 1858 when William A. Phillips established the townsite. The railroad arrived in 1867 and with it came more new settlers. Salina incorporated as a town in 1870. Salina became a city on 9 July 1920.

Huge growth occurred during the 1950s when Smoky Hill Air Force Base re-opened in 1951. It was later named Schilling Air Force Base. Unfortunately, the base was closed in 1965. Gradually, the town has recovered from the closure and now has a booming economy and has become a large trade and retail center for the area.
