Andale is located in Sherman Township in Sedgwick County. The land on which Andale sits was part of old Indian lands which the government had considered worthless plains. By 1860, on the eve of the Civil War, most of the Indian lands previously opened up for white settlement were taken, and the influx of white hunters and settlers upon the Indian ground began.
A Wichita Beacon article stated that Andale was as “old as the rails,” since it was chartered in 1855, the same year as the railroad went through the area. The city is a compound of Anderson and Dale from the pioneer families of J. Will Dale and George Anderson. It was the Honorable Frank Dale whose name was incorporated in the town’s name—he was appointed Supreme Justice of the state of Oklahoma—and it is with pardonable pride that Andale points to him as one of her early settlers.
G.W. Anderson owned the farm later occupied by Jacob Grassl, and he encouraged the building of the Catholic Church. The original copy of the warranty deed shows that G.W. Anderson sold land for the city for the consideration of $15,000 “which should be known as An Dale Kansas". There was a small controversy over the selection of the name of the proposed town. Neither Anderson nor Dale would sell ground for the site unless the town was named after him; so, they compromised on a combination of their names.
