Founded and laid out in 1872 by settlers from Doniphan County, Phillipsburg was named for Col. William A. Phillips, a member of Congress from Kansas. Governor Harved issued a proclamation organizing Phillips County in 1872, and he designated Phillipsburg to be the county seat. Families started arriving in the fall of 1872 and began building homes and businesses.
The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
