Zwolle Mayor G.J. “Pie” Martinez, Town Council, and the Anniversary Committee are busy preparing for the town’s anniversary on June 9 at 1 p.m. The Town of Zwolle received its Official Charter on June 12, 1898. City Officials will dedicate two bronze historical markers honoring Zwolle’s Kansas City Southern Railroad Depot (c. 1914) and the Old Zwolle Jail (c. 1909).

The area destined to become Zwolle was settled by Native American, Spanish, and French families more than a century and a half before the arrival of the railroad in 1896. This area was called Vallecillo, which is Spanish meaning “the little valley.”
