The city of White Cloud is named after Francis White Cloud, the son of Chief White Cloud of the Iowa people. You can experience the rich and extensive history of White Cloud at the Ma-Hush-Kah Historical Society.
The city is best known for being near the famous "Four-State Lookout.". On a clear day, you can see parts of four states -- Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and Iowa - seriously! The views from White Cloud are some of the most iconic in the state of Kansas.
The city also is on the Glacial Hills Scenic Byway that stretches north-south from White Cloud at the Nebraska border towards Leavenworth in the Kansas City metropolitan area. For those who like a little bit of risk with their travels, check out Casino White Cloud!
