ⓘ Bushong, Kansas

The city, originally a whistle-stop of the Missouri Pacific Railroad, was first named Weeks. The city took its present name in 1886 in honor of St. Louis Browns catcher Albert J. "Doc" Bushong. Following the Browns victory in the 1886 World Series over the Chicago White Stockings, the Missouri Pacific Railroad honored several of the St. Louis players by naming some of their depots after the players. Bushong had played every game in the series and was bat in Game Six, when the winning run scored by stealing home. The city of Bushong is the only one still carrying its name from the 1886 World Series.

During the Cold war, Bushong was the site of one of the first generations with nuclear warheads of Intercontinental ballistic missiles. Site, active from 1961-1965, was part of the strategic 548-th missile squadron.
