Dunlap is a city in Morris County, Kansas, United States. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 30.[6]

History[edit]

A post office was established in Hillsborough on March 19, 1874 then renamed to Dunlap on April 20, 1874.[7]

In 1878, Benjamin "Pap" Singleton chose Dunlap as the site for his second Singleton Colony, a community of freedmen who had migrated from Tennessee, because of land available under the Homestead Act. It was named Dunlap after its founder, Joseph Dunlap,[8][9] an Indian agent for the Kaw tribe. Before its present name, the settlement was briefly known as Hillsboro.[10] In the early 1880s, the Presbyterian Church in Dunlap founded the Freedmen's Academy to provide an education to freedmen's families in Kansas. The Academy closed in the mid-1890s.

The post office in Dunlap closed on August 12, 1988.
