About the Delano District
Just west of downtown Wichita lies an eclectic business district full of shops, restaurants, and attractions. Although the Delano district may look inviting and family-friendly today, that wasn’t always the case.
Originally a cowtown at the end of the Chisholm Trail Delano had a reputation as a place where trail-weary cowboys could take their rest and recreation in the many saloons and brothels.
Over the years, Delano’s wild past has faded, but a reminder stands in the form of the clock tower that stands on the roundabout at Sycamore and Douglas. Today, Delano is home to a variety of stores, restaurants, and attractions that offer something for everyone.
