Berryton is an unincorporated community in Shawnee County, Kansas, United States.[1] It is located east of the Topeka Regional Airport.


Berryton was laid out in 1888 and named for its two founders, George Washington Berry and his son George Webster Berry.[3][4] The first post office in Berryton was established in May 1888.[5] In 1912 the town was described as, "a little village of Shawnee county, is a station on the Missouri Pacific R. R., 9 miles southeast of the city of Topeka. It has a money order postoffice with one rural delivery route, and is a trading center for the neighborhood in which it is located. The population in 1910 was 75."[6]

It currently has a post office, an elementary school, an event center, and two churches.
