Welcome!

Kiowa County was created on April 11, 1889, taking its name for the Kiowa Indians. The Missouri Pacific Railroad crossed the Kansas border in 1887 when the area was still part of a larger Bent County. The railroad platted towns approximately every seven miles. Incorporated towns are Sheridan Lake, Eads and Haswell. Unincorporated towns are Towner, Brandon, Chivington and Arlington. Kiowa County is dedicated to providing economic, social, health and other services to its citizens. 

The Kiowa County Landfill will be CLOSED Saturday, July 2, 2022 in observance of Independence Day. They will resume normal business hours Wednesday, July 6, 2022. The Kiowa County Courthouse, Kiowa County Department of Social Services, and Kiowa County Public Health Office will be CLOSED Monday, July 4, 2022 in observance of Independence Day. We will resume normal business hours Tuesday, July 5, 2022. Sorry for any inconvenience. Have a safe weekend!
