City of Virgil


In 1857 six families travelling by ox team and wagon settled northwest of the present town site of Virgil.  In 1869 the town was officially named "Virgil" after a Latin poet. Kansas became a state in 1861 and in 1862 Frank Osborn, from Virgil, was one of the first county commissioners. If you're looking for wide open spaces with few interruptions, look no farther than Virgil.
