The City of Mount Hope

At the center of the K-96 Corridor, the City of Mount Hope’s convenient location makes it a center of opportunity.  Just minutes from Wichita or Hutchinson, Mount Hope provides commuters easy travel via the four-lane K-96 highway.   Living in Mount Hope provides the peace of mind and comforts of small town living and easy access to jobs nearby.  You'll find existing homes and new home developments ready for your move.  K-96 also gives Mount Hope businesses access to customers. 
In fact, ask the owners of A1 Truck Warehouse, Howard’s Inc. and LMNO Pizza and they’ll tell you customers visit them from all around the region. 

The people of Mount Hope have recently participated in programs to identify specific opportunities that are a priority for the community. 
One of those opportunities is a small grocery/convenience store.  With nearly 10,000 vehicles traveling on K96 at Mount Hope,
and a residential base within walking distance, the location is ideal!

Among the many amenities in Mount Hope, you’ll find:

  • Public services including a post office, public library, police and fire protection
  • 24/7 access fitness center
  •  Community/Senior Center
  • Full service senior care, including licensed nursing care, at the Mount Hope Nursing Center
  • 3 parks, including Woodland Park with a stocked fishing lake and ADA compliant walking trails
  • Full service banking

Mount Hope has sites that are ideal for small manufacturing or industrial operations.  All have easy access to K96 Highway and some are rail served.  The ability to attract workers from the entire region, services and suppliers close by in Wichita and Hutchinson and a business-friendly attitude, make Mount Hope an excellent home for industry.  Recognizing that, Indiana based AgReliant Genetics, one of the largest field seed companies, recently chose Mount Hope as the location for a 12,000 square foot research facility. 

Mount Hope invites you to take a look at our community and find out how you can join us in the center of opportunity.  To learn more contact Mayor Terry Somers or City Clerk Charlie Beetch at 316-661-2211,  or go to
