Welcome to Stevens County, Kansas
Stevens County, Kansas is a progressive county with “A Vision for the Future.” Our county seat, Hugoton, has long been known as the “Natural Gas Capital”, but we are diversifying our economy with the construction of the first industrial-sized cellulosic ethanol plant in the U.S. and a new milk processing and cheese plant. We enjoy outstanding educational, recreational and medical facilities while consistently having some of the lowest property taxes in Kansas. Stevens County is also blessed with thousands of acres of irrigated farmland. Our greatest asset, however, is our friendly people. Stevens County is truly a place where you can do big business while enjoying a small town quality of life.
