Founded on April 18, 1857, Chetopa was originally an Osage Nation village named after Chief Chetopah, and later the site of the “Golden Spike” of the South, where the MK&T (“Katy”) railroad won the exclusive right to cross the Indian Territories (later, Oklahoma). Our city is now home to a close-knit community sharing true Midwestern values.
