History

1915 Railroad Map of Sedgwick County

W.W. Hays came to this area in the early 1870s. In 1891, he platted land that he owned so a town could be built.[9] The Haysville State Bank was established in 1919.[10] Truck farming supported a lot of the families in the area. In 1874 a grist mill was built on the bank of the Cowskin to process corn that was harvested in the area. Haysville's first school was built in 1876 at a location that may have been near what are now the Water Department facilities.

In 1887, the Chicago, Kansas and Nebraska Railway Company built a branch line north-south from Herington through Haysville to Caldwell.[11] It was renamed in 1891 to Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railway which shut down in 1980, renamed in 1980 to Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas Railroad, merged in 1988 to Missouri Pacific Railroad, merged in 1997 to the current Union Pacific Railroad. Most locals still refer to this railroad as the "Rock Island". In 1903 a depot was opened and passenger trains shuttled people to and from Wichita.

On May 3, 1999, a tornado rated F4 on the Fujita scale struck Haysville, killing 6 people. Damage to structures included 150 homes and 27 businesses.[12] All of Haysville's historic district was destroyed. The only thing left standing on the east side of main was the original bank vault.
