Barton County is nearly in the geographical center of the State, being situated exactly midway between the northern and southern boundary lines, and is in the first tier of counties west of a central line drawn from north to south; the east line of the county being a little over 200 miles west of the east line of the State, and a little less than 200 east of the west line. The northern and southern boundary lines of the county are marked by the third and fourth standard parallel lines. Russell County adjoins Barton on the north, on the south is Stafford County, on the east a portion of Rice and Ellsworth counties, and on the west a part of Pawnee and Rush counties. In formation, the county is exactly square, being thirty miles north and south by the same east and west. It contains 576,000 acres, or 900 square miles, and for municipal purposes is divided into twenty civil townships.1.

Organized in 1872. County seat, Great Bend. In honor of Miss Clara Barton, of Massachusetts, who won great distinction during the war for the Union by her remarkably effective philanthropic career in the sanitary department of the army.2.
