Cottonwood Falls is a sleepy town just west of Emporia, Ks. As of the 2010 census there are only 905 people that live in Cottonwood falls it self. For such a small number of people inthe town it just happens to be the county seat for Chase County.
In this day and age it is a sleepy town with not much going on. There are a few mom and pop boutiques and antique shops but many of them are not open but maybe a few days a week. One of the more well known shops is a leather working shop. They can work on old baseball gloves and make things custom. They even sell whole cow hides if you are in the market. In town there are not a lot of places to eat. They have a subway and the local hotel. The hotel is very rustic and the food is good. But do not count on good service unless you are a local.
The court house is original and very nice. For the most part it is mainly city offices any more. People are welcome to go in and look around.
The town even has a beagle run if you have a beagle or a dog that needs to get outside and explore the area. They do have human trails to for the humans to walk/run. There you can see waterfalls and would be fun for children, pictures or if you are in need of a place to cool off.
