Eads, a town of less than 1,000 people, is the county seat of Kiowa County, and is located at the intersections of US Highway 287 and CO Highway 96.

First named Dayton, then New Dayton, the town finally chose “Eads” in honor of James Buchanan Eads, who bridged the Mississippi River. Today it's the Kiowa County seat, set amid farms and ranches.

A few miles south of Eads is an area popular with wildlife, fishing and water enthusiasts; four reservoirs — Neegronda, Neenoshe, Neesopah and Neeskah — are all located nearby.

Jackson's Pond welcomes picnickers, hikers, bikers, fishers and birders, who can spot kingfisher, raptors and shorebirds and other wildlife.
