It's been several years since I visited, however, I've read they have made even more improvements! Truely a wonderful part of history brought to life! It is wonderful to have such an exhibit in our area. Very good learning experience for children and adults.

Set within Olathe, step back in time to the 19th century. Tour the family home, barn, outbuildings and more. Enjoy the animals and take a stagecoach ride. On the weekends watch living history blacksmith and cookstove demonstrations. Great for the family travel and history buffs. Admission cost is low and a great value.

Our tour brought to light farming lifestyle in the 19th & early 20th centuries in this local area. The museum is a vast array of period paraphenalia which gave us an up-close look at items used, many ingenious, all using much manual labor bring a feeling of how spoiled we are today.

We visited this farmstead and had a very fun time. The exhibits were interactive and it truly felt like taking a step back in time.

This is a working farm and historic site in Olathe - not to be missed. The Mahaffies were early pioneers and founding fathers in Olathe. Besides being successful farmers, they also hosted a stagecoach stop from 1865-70. The period interpreters are friendly and knowledgeable. Our kids were involved in hands on activities, like 1860's games and doing laundry. And they... More
