Message from the Mayor

Greetings!  The Office of Mayor Ladd N. Wendelin and the Citizens of Oberlin, Kansas welcome you to the official Oberlin website. Here you can find more information about our community, pay utility bills online and learn more about the opportunities and services we offer.

We pride ourselves on the very same values that our forefathers brought over from Eastern Europe to High Plains over 130 years ago. A keen knowledge of the land, hard work and a selfless determination, no matter what falls (or sometimes doesn’t fall) from the sky, have come to define the people who call Oberlin home to this day.

At the same time, we also pride ourselves in our friendliness and hospitality; both qualities that are unsurpassed for miles around so far as we know. Whether you're taking a step back in time at the historic Landmark Inn or Last Indian Raid Museum, taking time off at the Oberlin Country Club, Gateway Civic Center, plunging into our new Municipal Swimming Pool or shopping along our brick-paved business district, we're glad to have ya' and hope you enjoy your stay with us!

Our collective past, the land and our pride as Kansans have come to define us, as we balance preserving our way of life while moving forward into the future. We invite and welcome new business opportunities, and of course, YOU to come and experience Oberlin, its friendly faces and all that we have to offer.

Welcome to Oberlin!

Mayor Ladd N. Wendelin
