Salina sprang from the fertile soil near the Smoky Hill, Saline and Solomon Rivers. In the mid 1860s, our legacy as a regional trade hub first began between Native Americans and immigrants from the east. Wholesale trade gave H.D. Lee (Lee Jeans) a start to his success. With the railroad came industrial growth, in industries from milling to manufacturing. That regional trade aspect continues today. The population surged in the 1950s when the Smoky Hill Air Force Base (Schilling AFB) re-opened. Although the base closed in 1965, Salina prospered with the development of more industry and easy access to Interstates 70 and 135. The city thrives today thanks to a diverse economy and central location in Kansas.

Salina has a strong military history, perhaps most notably due to the Schilling Air Force Base, operational from WWII through the mid-1960s. Schilling AFB served as a Strategic Air Command (SAC) base and was closed in 1965. Salina has again emerged as a ‘military town’. The Great Plains Joint Training Center affords both military and civilian organizations an unprecedented opportunity to function jointly using real world technology to train and respond to missions both here and abroad. The center includes the Smoky Hill Weapons Range, Kansas Training Center and ‘Crisis City’ - and provides training facilities to all emergency response and support agencies, whether in one of its classrooms or on any of the training venues. Crisis City is a multi-use, fully functional training complex for local, state and federal responders. St. John’s Military School is also based is Salina, and has provided education for Cadets middle through high school for more than 125 years. Go Muleskinners! Salinans proudly support service members and families. The Salina Military Affairs Council hosts many events in the community, so be sure to keep up with announcements, “Like” Salina Military Affairs Council on Facebook.
