Olathe Takes Big Step to Preserve City's History | Community Spirit
The Olathe Historic Preservation Board is proud to announce the establishment of the Olathe Register of Historic Places.
On August 2, the City Council approved five separate landmarks for the first-ever designation to the local register. The inaugural list of properties include the Walnut Grove one-room Schoolhouse which is currently owned by the Olathe Public Schools; the Albert Ott House and Frank Lanter House, both privately owned residences and currently listed on the National Historic Register; and the Mahaffie House and Ensor Farm, both City owned and operated and also listed on the National Historic Register.
The Olathe Register of Historic Places is a list of properties or landmarks formally recognized by the City of Olathe as historic places. Its purpose is to promote the conservation of places of Olathe’s historical, cultural and architectural significance. For more information on the local register, Olathe’s historic properties, or to obtain an application for nomination, please visit www.OlatheKS.org/Development/Neighborhoods/HistoricPreservation.
