The City of Westmoreland, Kansas is the county seat for Pottawatomie County.
Established in 1853, Westmoreland was once a stop for travelers on the Oregon Trail. South of town on Highway 99 is a roadside park dedicated to those travelers complete with informational signage and a covered wagon and oxen sculptured by Ernest White, local resident.
Westmoreland is home to one of the top elementary schools in the State of Kansas as well as in the school district which can lay claim to having a Blue Ribbon Junior/Senior High School by the U.S. Department of Education. The Blue Ribbon Award is considered the highest honor an American school can achieve.
The City of Westmoreland owns and maintains a 16 pad RV Park along Highway 99. Campers will find 12 sites with full hookups, a playground for children, 2 horse shoe pits, a bathhouse (operational after the first frost in the spring until the first freezing temperature in the winter).
Adjacent to the RV Park is a 9 hole disc golf course and the city swimming pool.
We hope that you will consider visiting us in the near future, and possibly deciding to live here!
