Wellington is a friendly community with residents who believe life in a small town is the best way to live, work and play. Located in the Heartland of America, Wellington has all the charm and safety of a small town but is only a short 20 minute drive south of Wichita. Wellington is a hub for travelers of three major highways. The Kansas Turnpike (I-35), US-81 and US-160 all pass within or near our borders. Wellington is the county seat of Sumner County, Wheat Capital of the World and was named for the Duke of Wellington by one of the town founders. For those of us who are proud to call Wellington our home, we invite you to visit soon. For even more information on the City of Wellington please visit the Wellington Area Chamber/CVB.
