Raised in Elmdale the majority of their lives, Josh and Misty Simmons have many fond memories of their small Kansas town. After high school, Josh spent some time away from his Elmdale roots but eventually returned where he and Misty reconnected in 2009 and have raised their kids in Elmdale ever since. As Undersheriff of Chase County and Mayor of Elmdale, Josh is strongly committed to his community and Misty shares his love of Elmdale alongside him. They were excited to purchase the treehouse in 2020 and completely renovated the inside. They hope the Elmdale Treehouse will provide an opportunity for others to experience the small hometown life of Elmdale and historic Chase County as well as the beauty of the Flint Hills that they love so dearly.
