Organized in 1873, Barber County whose county seat is Medicine Lodge, was named in honor of Thomas W.Barber, a Free State settler of Douglas County, who was killed in consequence of the political troubles, near Lawrence, December 6, 1855. (the county was originally named in the statute as "Barbour," but was corrected by special act of the Legislature in 1883.)

Barber County's beautiful Gyp Hills offer scenic views straight out of a Technicolor movie. Highway US 160 passes through this area and there is a marked scenic route to take you by some of the best places.

Most of the county is hilly, and the economy is based on ranching, petroleum, and mining.

Carrie Nation began her crusade against saloons in Kiowa. Her home in Medicine Lodge is now a museum.

Medicine Lodge was the site of a famous gathering of Indian tribes to make a treaty with the U. S government.
