Dunlap is a city in Morris County, Kansas, United States. The population was 81 at the 2000 census.



In 1878, Benjamin "Pap" Singleton chose Dunlap as the site for his second Singleton Colony, a community of freedmen who had migrated from Tennessee, because of land available under the Homestead Act. It was named Dunlap after its founder, Joseph Dunlap, an Indian agent for the Kaw tribe. Before its present name, the settlement was briefly known as Hillsboro.[3] In the early 1880s, the Presbyterian Church in Dunlap founded the Freedmen's Academy to provide an education to freedmen's families in Kansas. The Academy closed in the mid-1890s.
