It was the backdrop for elaborate set pieces, many of which would provide material for Warner's westerns for years to come, and provide Mel Brooks with his most famous parody, Blazing Saddles.

In a prairie area, the community is located on the Arkansas River at the 100th meridian. Located on the Kansas-Oklahoma border, it is one of the area's landmarks.

The city is taking advantage of this heritage and has advertised its downtown business district as a Western-style tourist attraction.

I am a young resident of Dodge City who grew up near the library and visited it as a teenager before studying computer science. He explained that Dodge is like Deadwood, Kansas, because it's a nasty small town.

Louis Sanchez, born Louis Sanchez in Dodge City in 1923 to a railway family, said, "You couldn't go to the barber" because the city was in a Mexican village. Livestock farming, buffalo hunting and other activities in the area encouraged people to settle down and find 1872 Dodge City. The post office already had Buffalo, Kansas, and so the city was called Buffalo City until August, but the name was changed and the founders settled on the names Dodge and City. Early settlers in Inodge City traded buffalo bones and skins and provided a civilian community for Fort Dodge.
During the harsh winter of 1865, Major General Greville Dodge began repairing the telegraph line and restoring military forces along the Santa Fe Trail, reopening the itinerary and moving his headquarters to Fort Dodge.

The Depot Theater Company is one of the oldest and most successful theater companies in Dodge City. The Carnegie Center for the Arts is located in the original public library building and offers space for galleries of local artists.
