Kansas is bordered by Nebraska on the north; Missouri on the east; Oklahoma on the south; and Colorado on the west.
The state is divided into 105 counties with 628 cities, and is located equidistant from the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.
Southwest Kansas, however, was still a part of Spain, Mexico, and the Republic of Texas until the conclusion of the Mexican–American War in 1848, when these lands were ceded to the United States.
From 1812 to 1821, Kansas was part of the Missouri Territory.
The geographic center of the 48 contiguous states is in Smith County near Lebanon.
Tribes in the eastern part of the state generally lived in villages along the river valleys.

Dodge City was another wild cowboy town, and both Bat Masterson and Wyatt Earp worked as lawmen in the town.
In one year alone, eight million head of cattle from Texas boarded trains in Dodge City bound for the East, earning Dodge the nickname "Queen of the Cowtowns." In response to demands of Methodists and other evangelical Protestants, in 1881 Kansas became the first U. state to adopt a constitutional amendment prohibiting all alcoholic beverages, which was only repealed in 1948.
