The Olathe Historical Society was founded by a group of citizens to preserve the rich history of the City and people of Olathe, and to collect and care for documents and artifacts from the City’s early beginnings to present day. The Articles of Incorporation were finalized and accepted on November 24, 1974. A charter was granted by the State of Kansas on January 28, 1975.
The purpose of the Olathe Historical Society is to create interest in the history of Olathe, to bring together people interested in that history and to discover, collect and preserve material and sites which help to illustrate the history of the area.
