Explore the birthplace of Wichita by touring the vicinity of the Little Arkansas.  Back in 1868, 9th and Waco was Wichita's downtown and the early heart of the community.  In the 1800s, its streetscape transitioned from log cabins and dugouts to Victorian homes covered in gingerbread detail.  In the twentieth century, the area has featured some of Wichita's fashionable residences and recreation along the little Arkansas.  Today it includes businesses that serve a range of ethnic and immigrant groups.  Join us as we explore Wichita's story through this rich and historic part of the city.
