About our community:
The City of Girard is the County Seat of Crawford County, at the intersection of Highways 7 and 47. As of the 2020 census, Girard’s population is about 2500 people. Downtown Girard is built around a traditional and historic courthouse square. The community was founded in February 1868 when Dr. Charles Strong selected the geographic center of Girard as the place to shoot a deer and proclaim that spot to be designated as the new town, named after his hometown in Pennsylvania. Girard is the location of multiple National Registered Historic Places!
Girard may be a small community, but our hospital employs many individuals living all throughout Crawford County and the surrounding area. Pittsburg, KS is less than a 20-minute drive from our small town and boasts all the big city amenities that you might need.
