History

Shattuck is located in what was once the Cherokee Outlet. [6] The Southern Kansas Railway built a railroad through the area in 1887, and there was a railroad water station called "Norice" on the site that later became Shattuck. [6] Non-Indian settlers first arrived in the Land Run of 1893. [6] Around the railroad station, new businesses opened to support the farmers, including a blacksmith shop, a store, a school, and a post office. [6] The post office, which was incorporated in November 1893, was named Shattuck after a Santa Fe Railroad director. [6] The town site was plotted 1901, and the town was incorporated in 1906. [6]
