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.
