Milan, a little town in Sumner county, is located in Ryan township, on the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe R. R. 15 miles west of Wellington, the county seat. It has a bank, a mill and elevator, a number of good retail stores, telegraph and express offices, and a money order postoffice with two rural routes. The population according to the census of 1910 was 250. The town was founded in 1880, the postoffice and school house antedating the town by several years. The first teacher in the new school building in Milan was a Mrs. Merrill, and the first postmaster was I. D. Moffitt, who was also the first storekeeper. The first birth, as well as the first death, was that of the little son of Mr. Moffitt. The first marriage was between Nannie Hankins and W. D. Baker. Dr. William Cummings was the first physician and erected a drug store when the town was founded.
