Bonner Springs is a city in Johnson, Leavenworth, and Wyandotte counties in the State of Kansas, and part of the Kansas City Metropolitan Area. The vast majority of the city, which lies in Wyandotte County, is part of the "Unified Government" which contains Kansas City, Kansas, Bonner Springs, Edwardsville, and roughly a quarter of Lake Quivira. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 7,314.HistoryIn 1812, the Chouteau brothers made their way from St. Louis Missouri and settled in the area that would become Bonner Springs, starting a trading post named Four Horses. Four Horses allowed easy access to trade items, as well as a ferry to cross the Kansas River. Four Horses was a success, and in 1830, Henry Tiblow took charge of the ferry. Henry Tiblow was a Delaware Indian, who was also an interpreter for the government. He lived in a small cabin on the west side of the city.Soon, the ferry became known as Tiblow Settlement, and continued working for years. The town was originally called Tiblow, because of the ferry, with John McDanield as the town proprietor. Then, in 1885, a man by the name of Philo Clark took over, and the town changed its name to Bonner Springs. The town was named after Robert E. Bonner, a newspaper editor, and from a mineral spring said to have medicinal qualities. Bonner Springs was incorporated as a city in 1898. Philo Clark became the first mayor of Bonner Springs, with the incorporation of the city.
