Hutchinson Overview

Hutchinson (known to the locals as Hutch) is nicknamed the Salt City due to the abundance in the area. In fact, this area was once surveyed by the federal government to become the location for the WIPP plant but the salt in the area was not growing at the correct speeds for this. Instead, several of the major Salt Companies are now located in this area and produce much of the nations road salts that we use today. It is the home of the Kansas Underground Salt Musuem.

Hutchinson is also home to the world famous Cosmophere and Space Center. This and the annual state fair tend to bring the tourists to this traditionally small town with approx. 45,000 residents.
