Ellis County, Kansas
City of Antonino

Kansas Flag

Formed by a number of families attending the Munjor parish. Building of the parish church began in the fall of 1904 with completion in March of 1905.

The original intention was to name the town Anthony after Saint Anthony, the patron saint of the Russian town of Munjour but the post office department refused the name because there was already an Anthony, Kansas. The name of Antonino was then picked.

The history of Antonino is documented in The Golden Jubilee of German-Russian Settlements of Ellis and Rush Counties, Kansas, August 31, September 1 and 2, 1926
