Wallace County (standard abbreviation: WA) is a county located in the U.S. state of Kansas. As of the 2010 census, the county population was 1,485. It has the second lowest population of any county in Kansas. Greeley County, which borders on the south, has the lowest. Its county seat is Sharon Springs. It was created in 1868 and named in honor of Brigadier general W.H.L. Wallace who was a veteran of the Mexican-American War and a casualty of the Battle of Shiloh. It is one of four Kansas counties to practice Mountain Standard Time rather than Central Standard Time.
