Hackney is an unincorporated community in Cowley County, Kansas, United States.[1]

History[edit]

The town was named after William P. Hackney, a colorful frontier lawyer and politician from Cowley County.[citation needed] Hackney was a station and shipping point on the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway.[2] The post office was established March 31, 1894, and discontinued February 15, 1924.[3]

An airport was built in the early 1940s and was used as a training airfield by the United States Army Air Forces during World War II. The airport is now called Strother Field and it is the home of Strother Field Industrial Park.
