Alta Vista

Alta Vista was founded in 1887, and our community is still going strong.  We are a thriving Flint Hills city with many local businesses including a grocery store, barbershop, lumberyard, café, service station, bar & grill, construction companies, meat locker, churches, antique store, welding shop, bank, post office, agricultural museum, elementary school, senior center, and much more.  Many of our 450 residents work locally, but many also find Alta Vista to be a convenient commute to Manhattan, Topeka, Junction City and Fort Riley and more.  Come discover why Alta Vista is a great place to call home!
