Ramona is a community of 80+ residents, tucked away in north central Marion County, near the Marion-Dickinson county line. The town is just off the beaten path of the Santa Fe Trail, and on the distant edge of the scenic Flint Hills.
Ramona is a quiet rural community with only five streets, and not a stoplight to be found! Not much traffic either, except on Memorial Day and the 4th of July. That’s why they say that in Ramona “a traffic jam is two parked cars and a dog in the road.”
Ramona is an excellent community for families as well as elderly citizens, who appreciate a quiet, and supportive community.

The Ramona area was one of the last to be settled in Marion County. The first settlers arrived in the early 1880s. If the Kansas, Nebraska and Chicago railroad had not been routed through this part of Marion County, Ramona would never have existed. The town was founded by the speculative Golden Belt Town Company, which filed a town plat in April 1887.
Ramona has always been a small community, however, in order to incorporate in 1909, there had to be at least 250 citizens to qualify as a third-class city. It petitioned for incorporation on December 14, 1909, and the Board of County Commissioners gave its approval January 3, 1910.
