Emporia has the historical significance as the first city in America to celebrate Veteran’s Day. Moreover, it’s known as the home to William Allen White’s lauded newspaper the Emporia Gazette.
Though the historical downtown area has a number of cute shops, there isn’t much in terms of rentals.
Just to the southwest of downtown, however, you’ll find a great neighborhood with the occasional apartment rental available in older apartment complexes and rental homes.
Most of the nicer, newer apartment complexes, condominiums and townhomes will be found just north of the city center in the small section of town around Emporia State University.These rentals have studio apartments and furnished apartments for rent, as well as short term leases, there are several buildings that are well maintained and perfectly desirable. Many of these buildings also have tons of great amenities, including gyms, pools and clubhouses.
To the northwest of the city center you’ll also find a lot of new development, as well as rental homes. This area has the additional benefit of being close to several parks as well as the Flinthills Mall. Two bedrooms here are similar priced to the ESU area.
If you’re moving to Emporia with a four-legged friend, don’t sweat! Many of the area rentals are incredibly pet-friendly. So welcome to Emporia! Enjoy all that this community has to offer!
