The Midwestern city of McPherson is nestled between Wichita and Salina in central Kansas. McPherson was founded in the 1870s and was named after Civil War General James "Birdseye" McPherson. The city was well planned by its founders, who designated plots of land for schools, churches, and other important buildings which helped the city develop quickly.

At one point, McPherson aimed to be the state capital but lost out to Topeka, which shows the city's early ambition. The development of the railroad and the discovery of oil in the county helped McPherson develop into an affluent settlement. Now a great place to stop off on your vacation, there are lots of reasons to rent an RV in McPherson, including beautiful buildings, breathtaking nature, and much more.
