The City was developed in 1868 by the Union Pacific Railroad after a disagreement with the nearby town of Monrovia.
It is also the home of the Atchison County Community High School as part of USD 377.  The first community high school in the State of Kansas.  It started in 1891.
The Effingham Horse Thief Association began many years ago.  As a civic organization, they started the county fair.  They are now known as the Effingham Atchison County Fair Association.  I guess they ran out of horse thieves.
