5 Reasons To Love Spring Hill, Kansas

Whenever someone asks us why we decided to open Bull Creek Distillery in Spring Hill, Kansas as opposed to a trendy downtown area, we say, “We love it here. This is where we feel at home.” Our answer is simple, but we wanted to elaborate on why exactly we love Spring Hill so much!

Why We Love Spring Hill, Kansas

1. The Small Town Charm

Spring Hill is a small town right outside of Kansas City where everybody knows your name and would give you the shirt off their back if you needed it. Although the town is growing, it still keeps its charm by maintaining important historic buildings and homes in the area.

2. There is Plenty to Do

3. The Rich History

Spring Hill was founded in 1857 by James B. Hovey. According to the Spring Hill Historical Society, the first building in town was the Spring Hill Hotel. The two-story structure was built in 1857. Although the structure no longer exists, it is rumored that the hotel was used as a hiding place for runaway slaves.

Celia Ann Dayton, the first female doctor in Kansas, arrived in Spring Hill in 1859, with her adopted son, Hiram Eugene, who was also a doctor. Celia Ann was independent and refused to conform to the societal norms at the time.
In the early 1900s, bandits and thieves found easy targets in the small town of Spring Hill. The frequency of these uninvited visits began to alarm Spring Hill residents, who formed the “Minute Men” to detour unwanted visitors.
