Plevna is located in Reno [RN] County a couple of miles north of the North Fork of the Ninnescah River. Highway US 50 runs on the North edge of Plevna; an older road from Abbyville to Sylvia runs through Plevna. As you come into Plevna from the east, the highway has to bend around the old brick auditorium that now houses the city offices. There is playground equipment on the east side of this building.
The Santa Fe railroad still serves Plevna, and the State Bank of Plevna is still in business. For many years the Plevna General Store was a well-known gathering place and local landmark; sadly, it burned January 3, 1997.
HistoryPlevna, in Bulgaria, was the site of an important 1878 battle in the Russo-Turkish War. There is also a Plevna in Montana and Ontario.
