Step back in time to visit the wonderful and historic Delano District. As Wichita`s oldest neighborhoods, Delano actually sprang up as a cowtown at the end of the Chisholm Trail. It quickly gained a reputation as a place where trail-weary cowboys could take their rest and recreation in the many saloons and brothels. Today Delano is home to dozens of unique shops, art galleries and restaurants. You`ll find the same old-time streets and lighting that make for a great walking tour of the area. There are many unique retailers in the Delano District including the famed Hatman Jack`s that is said to be having the largest and most diverse collection of hats in the state. Historic Delano is an eclectic shopping district west of the river in downtown Wichita. It is home to a large number of eclectic historic attractions and its worth your while spending some time here to discover it all at Historic Delano.
