Legend has it a man of small stature came to nearby Siloam Springs, Arkansas, by train from Kansas City, Kansas, rented a shack and stocked it with light household goods, pots and pans, bolts of cloth, and sewing machine parts and needles. He drove out into Indian Territory and stopped at the farm homes along the way. When in the Kansas area, he consistently camped out at the spring on Spring Creek under the hill just south and west of the present town site and south of the present Scenic U.S. 412. Because the Indians in the area could not pronounce his name, he was known as Little Kansas City. Thus, the town of Kansas was named for this unknown, but well remembered man. He may have been the first merchant in what is now Kansas, called "Little Kansas" by many of its residents.
