Welcome to Historic Delano


Welcome to Historic Delano, one of Wichita's oldest neighborhoods.

Delano sprang up as a cowtown at the end of the Chisholm Trail and quickly gained a reputation as a place where trail-weary cowboys could take their rest and recreation in the many saloons and brothels.

Today Delano is home to dozens of unique locally-owned shops, art galleries and restaurants. Nightlife includes events like the Thursday Night Pub Pedal and the Final Friday Art Crawl.

Spend some time and discover Historic Delano.
