Wichita was founded as a trading post along the Chisholm Trail in the 1860s.

As Volga German immigrants left the agriculture sector of the American prairie, many were attracted to Wichita's aircraft and other industries.

There is a convent located in Wichita for the Adorers of The Blood of Christ (ASC) order of the Roman Catholic Church.
