About Olathe, KS
The name Olathe, which translates to "beautiful", is derived from the language of the Shawnee, one of the original Native American tribes that inhabited the Kansas plains. The town was incorporated in 1857 with the help of Dr. John T. Barton, a physician. By late 1859, the town became the county seat as it earned a reputation for being one of the stops for gold prospectors and farmers on their way to the West Coast. Hard-won economy helped foster the area's growth, including the rise of the Hyer Boot factory, lumber companies and milling industry. Olathe saw a massive population increase at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, and the town continued to swell as the turn of the century grew closer. In the late 1950s, Highway 35, which solidified Olathe's position as a major Midwestern city, was constructed and the city continued to grow. In 2008, Olathe, KS was dubbed the 11th "Best City to Live in the United States" by CNN/Money and Money magazine, partly because of its exceptional economic growth. Two major companies in the Olathe area include Honeywell and Garmin. Olathe also has an extensive variety of attractions, including nearly 30 miles of trails that are available for mountain bikers and hikers. In addition to this, Olathe is home to the Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop and Farm, celebrating the city's heritage as a historic stagecoach stop on the Santa Fe Trail during the era of westward expansion.
