In the modern town of Olathe, surrounded by high rises, cement structures, and urban chaos, you will find a place where time appears to have wound back to a simpler age. The Mahaffie estate, a farmhouse constructed by J.B. and Lucinda Mahaffie, is a heritage structure standing firm since 1865, and was one of the first places that the stagecoach passengers traveling the Westport Route would stop at. Today, visitors can get a chance to tour on a stagecoach and discover the farmhouse, which is a National Historic Site, and also the Heritage Center, which hosts exhibitions from time to time.
Located just five minutes from downtown Olathe, the Prairie Center is a 300-acre tallgrass preserve and education site with trails that meander through remnant and reestablished prairie and riparian woodlands. A majority of the eight ponds on the property are intermittent wetlands for wildlife. A small lake for fishing and water studies is also on the property. "A bedrock creek provides exploration of aquatic life as well as a look back in time through the fossil remains embedded in the limestone creek bed." The Prairie Center is open to the public from dawn to dusk seven days a week for trail walking or for fishing in the lake.
This center presents or hosts 250 events per year, including internationally renowned artists in music, dance, theater, comedy and opera performances.
