Located near an old Choteau brothers trading fort called “Four Corners” on the Kaw River, Bonner Springs was first known as Tiblow, named after Henry Tiblow, an early resident and ferry owner of this area. Each year in late August, Bonner Springs celebrates Tiblow Days in recognition of its heritage.
