Mission Statement - To advance the commercial, industrial and civic interests of the City of Sabetha, and it's surrounding trade area......and, to develop a unified public spirit in all, thereby we can endeavor to make our city more beautiful, prosperous and a better community in which to live.

Sabetha has the unique distinction of being the only city in the United States with this name. Our beginning is also unique. A young man, who was a Greek scholar, well versed in mythical lore and the Bible, had a dream of a wonderful gold mine in California. With a map in hand, he started his journey from St. main streetJoseph, Missouri with a team of oxen - one named Hercules and the other named Pelleas. Near the present site of what is now Sabetha, he met with misfortune. Pelleas died on a Sunday causing the young man to abandon his quest and stay where he was. He dug a well which he named Sabbaton, the Greek word for Sabbath, in honor of the day. Sabbaton lead to the name "Sabetha". The water from the well was exceptionally fine and became known to other travelers heading west who would stop to quench their thirst.

The first settlement on the land where Sabetha is currently located was made by Captain Arthur W. Williams in the spring of 1857. In the spring of 1858, under the township law, he premptied on half section of land, laying out the future town of Sabetha. Sabetha finally became incorporated as a city during the summer of 1874.

Little did the young man know what the future would hold for the final resting place of his faithful ox, Pelleas. Though he never found gold in California, the treasure he started continues to build.

Sabetha is a very diversified community of industry, business and agriculture. Located on Hwy. 75 between Omaha and Topeka, we have a lot to offer.
