Chief Tonganoxie Lodge

Tonganoxie was named after Chief Tonganoxie, a Delaware Indian who ran a stagecoach stop and inn in what is now Tonganoxie. The Chief Tonganoxie Lodge was built in 1835 and was a stopover for mail and passengers. The government eventually took over the land and sold it to the Union Pacific Railroad.

Tonganoxie is located along the route from Lawrence to Fort Leavenworth in Northeastern Kansas. The town itself was actually established in 1866, after Magdalena Bury bought 40 acres from the Union Pacific and had it platted. Several of the town's early settlers wanted to name the city Buryville, but Mrs. Bury convinced them to use Chief Tonganoxie's name.
