How did Manhattan get the name, The Little Apple®?
It all began with a steamboat. The first settlers to Manhattan ran aground as they traveled up the Kansas River. New York investors insisted that the settlers would call their new community “Manhattan” for the new town they were to settle. With Manhattan, New York, known as the “Big Apple,” it was natural for Manhattan, Kansas, to become known as The Little Apple®. We were first called The Little Apple in 1977. Since then the recognition is used in promoting Manhattan as a tourism stop, for economic development, and attracting industries and conventions!
