Kickapoo, one of the oldest towns in Leavenworth county, is located on the Missouri river and the Missouri Pacific R. R. 7 miles from the city of Leavenworth. It was laid out in July, 1854, by citizens of Weston and Platte county, Mo., and was intended as a rival to Leavenworth. The town grew rapidly for awhile, but the location of the county seat at Leavenworth and the large outfitting trade there finally proved too much to be overcome, and its growth practically ceased. The population in 1910 was 200. Kickapoo has a money order postoffice, several general stores, churches, a public school, etc. By the act of Feb. 26, 1864, the legislature authorized the name of Kickapoo City changed to Steuben, and the name of Kickapoo township changed to Steuben township, but for some reason the act never became effective and the old names still appear on the modern maps.
