History

The first development in the Eastborough area began in 1929, but the discovery of oil in the area postponed its establishment until the middle of the 1930s. Although Eastborough found itself in disputes with the neighboring Woodlawn subdivision, the disputes were resolved after the two agreed to apply together for incorporation. Eastborough and Woodlawn were incorporated as the city of Eastborough on June 1, 1937.[3]

Geography

Eastborough is located at 37°41′11″N 97°15′32″W / 37.68639°N 97.25889°W / 37.68639; -97.25889 (37.6864752, -97.2588378)[4].

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 0.4 square miles (1.0 km²), all of it land.

Eastborough is entirely enclosed within the city of Wichita, Kansas, and relies upon Wichita for water purification and sewage treatment. Fire service is technically provided by Sedgwick County but because of the long distance from Eastbrough to the Wichita city limits, the Wichita fire department usually responds first in a reciprocal agreement with Sedgwick County. Eastborough maintains its own police force of seven officers which is approximately one officer for every 42 homes.

Eastborough's location near a major shopping center in Wichita (Towne East Square) caused a bit of friction between residents of Wichita and Eastborough in the 1980s through the 1990s as traffic to and from Towne East Square often would go through Eastborough (and be ticketed for exceeding Eastborough's 20 mile per hour speed limit). This was allieviated when Wichita upgraded Kellogg Avenue U.S. Route 54 such that Eastborough was no longer the best route to Towne East.
