Goddard is a city in Sedgwick County, Kansas, United States, and a suburb of Wichita. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 4,344.HistoryIn 1883, Ezekiel Wilder purchased farmland on the planned railway of the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway south of Blendon, Kansas, approximately 10mi west of Wichita. There, he established the town of Goddard in honor of J. F. Goddard, former third vice-president of the ATSF Railway. The railroad reached Goddard in 1884, and a post office was established there the same year. Several buildings were relocated from Blendon, including the town hall and the planned Methodist church. Goddard was officially incorporated in 1910.In recent decades as Wichita has expanded westward, a growing number of commuters have settled in Goddard, transforming it from a rural agricultural community into a suburb.GeographyGoddard is located at at an elevation of 1,463 feet . Goddard lies on U.S. Route 54 in south-central Kansas immediately west of Wichita.The community lies approximately 12mi southwest of the Arkansas River and 8mi north-northeast of the Ninnescah River in the Wellington-McPherson Lowlands region of the Great Plains.
