Homesteading in Kingman County

Norwich

Situated on the Osage Indian Lands, Norwich was founded in 1885. People began arriving to settle in this new town, and soon a railroad line was built by the Denver, Memphis and Atlantic Railroad. A hotel, an opera house, and a bank were among the buildings that were part of the town's landscape.

The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
