Green, Kansas is a quaint little community nestled in the hills of northeastern Clay County. Green got its name in 1868, when Kansas Governor Nehemiah Green, a staunch Methodist, took office after Governor Samuel Crawford left to become the colonel of a Kansas regiment organized to fight the Indians. Governor Green offered to buy a bell for the first Methodist Church to be established in a town named “Green.” The people of Green took the challenge and the governor made good on his promise. Today, this very same bell calls the people of Green to worship each Sunday.
