Wellsville Historical Society Discover the rich history of Wellsville, Kansas, by supporting the Wellsville Historical Society.
Wellsville is located in northeastern Kansas less than two miles southwest of the "four corners" of Franklin, Miami, Johnson, and Douglas Counties - less than 20 miles southwest of the Kansas City area. Wellsville was incorporated as a city in Franklin County on June 19, 1884; however, Wellsville traces its history to the 1860s.
