Westphalia, one of the towns of Anderson county, is located in Westphalia township on the Missouri Pacific R. R. 17 miles southwest of Garnett, the county seat. It has 2 banks, a weekly newspaper (the Times), a number of churches, good schools and all the principal lines of business are represented. There are telegraph and express offices and a money order postoffice with four rural routes. The population in 1910 was 550. When the railroad was completed in 1880 a town was platted at this point and named Cornell. Later a railroad station and postoffice were established under the name Westphalia. The name of the town was changed later to Westphalia. The first school was taught in 1881, and the first business places were opened about that time. The early inhabitants of the town and surrounding country were mostly Germans.
