Q: What western Kansas town is named for a former newspaper in the eastern United States?
The western Kansas town of Tribune is the county seat of Greeley County. It's named after the New York Tribune, of which Horace Greeley was the editor in the mid- to late-1800s.
Greeley, who encouraged western settlement, is often credited with popularizing the phrase "Go West, young man!" However, historians disagree on this attribution. Greeley County itself is named after the editor of the New York Tribune, as is the town of Horace, located near Tribune.
Greeley County is the state's least populated county. The city of Tribune and Greeley County operate as a unified government, similar to the unified government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kansas.
