Located in northern Pottawatomie County, Onaga is a perfect example of small-town revitalization.  With new water and sewer lines, a recently completed streetscape and high-performance fiber to the home, Onaga is perfectly positioned for growth.

Onaga is home to First Trust of Onaga, which provides non-discretionary custodial services on self-directed IRA, and personal custodial accounts, with more than 27,000 accounts and $2 billion under its custody.   

Onaga is also home to Community HealthCare System, a finalist for the Governor's Business of the Year Award, which employs more than 450 associates at seven locations serving a 10,000 square mill service area. 

The community is also home to a new, high-quality grocery story, and new hospital (currently under construction).
