Welcome to Hiawatha!
Welcome to Hiawatha! I can tell you about our fantastic schools, child care, and health care or about our wonderful maple trees, our beautiful parks, and our rejuvenated downtown. I could tell you how our citizens care deeply about the well being of each other. And, I could tell you that Hiawatha will stay on your mind long after you have left. I can tell you all of this, and every single word would be true.
Instead, I will tell you that in the last 7 years, Hiawatha has witnessed over 18 million dollars of commercial expansion or new construction despite the recession. Businessmen, companies, and franchises are betting $18,000,000 or more of their money that Hiawatha is the place to be in the 21st century. So should you! These 18 million reasons are good ones why you should choose Hiawatha as your place to live, work, or visit in northeast Kansas. The most important reasons though are listed above. If you are reading this, Hiawatha is in your future. Please let me show you how much our city has to offer.
Crosby L. Gernon, MD
Mayor of Hiawatha, Kansas
