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!
CLARIFICATION ON POOL OPENING
The City has been informed by the county health department, as well as the Governor, that we cannot open the pool until given notice by them.
We are hoping to be able to open on Memorial Day weekend as we always have, but we may have, but we may have to delay the opening week by week due to the coronavirs.
Pool passes will not be sold until we have a firm opening date.
We are sorry for any confusion the notice above may have cause.
For the safety of our citizens and staff, City Hall is closed to the public until further notice. City services will continue to operate as usual. Payments may be put in the drop box or you may call city hall to pay by credit/debit card. We would prefer that you do not pay in cash. City staff will be available regular hours by phone or email for any questions you may have. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Please be safe and careful.
