The City of Andale was incorporated on October 7th 1901 and held it's first election on November 11th, 1901. The town was named after the families of J. Will Dale and George Anderson, two of the original land owners to establish the town.
Due to political turmoil in Germany, many German Catholics immigrated to the US and by 1900, official records showed 39, 501 German immigrants in Kansas. Several of them settled here, in Andale, and many of their families are still here.
Currently, the City of Andale has a population of just over 900 people and continues to grow, yet it still keeps it's small town charm! Many of the children that are raised here go away to college and come back to raise their families. (Read more history here.)
