Luxury Iron Doors Enhance Both Vintage and Modern Architectural Elements in Hutchinson Communities
Hutchinson is a Central Kansas city that is the seat of Reno County. The small, suburban city sits along the Arkansas River and is home to about 42,000 people. Hutchinson was established in 1872 as a town that would support the supply needs of the Sante Fe Railroad line that crossed the Arkansas River there. Since that time, the city has maintained its small community atmosphere and family values through agricultural pursuits, industry and culture.
Pinky’s Iron Doors is Creating First Impressions that Last
Salt mines were discovered in Hutchinson early in its history, and the city's economy was primarily based upon salt mining and rock salt production activities. Salt processing plants for Cargill and Morton Salt still operate in Hutchinson. However, the city now enjoys a more diversified economy that is based on manufacturing of hydraulic equipment, tools, wind turbines and buses. Hutchinson residents find employment in these manufacturing facilities as well as in the healthcare, local government and retail sectors. The larger city of Wichita, Kansas is less than an hour's drive from Hutchinson to the southeast, and it offers even more employment opportunities for Hutchinson residents.
While Hutchinson is not a typical tourist destination, it does have a few notable attractions for tourists. For instance, visitors learn more about Hutchinson's salt mining heritage by touring the city's underground salt mine museum that is called Strataca. It is the only one of its kind in the country. Hutchinson's location in the middle of the state makes it an ideal city to host the annual Kansas State Fair. The city also contains Kansas Amish Country communities. Many visitors arrive in Hutchinson to shop for hand-made furniture and housewares that are made by Amish craftsmen.
Elements of residential and commercial architecture that are on display in Hutchinson can be described as simple, modest and functional. For a touch of elegance that does not detract from the city's down-to-earth, unassuming culture, property owners can replace builder grade entry doors with wrought iron ones.
