SERVPRO Supports Olathe Businesses

Olathe is the fourth most populous city in the Kansas metropolitan area, with a population of 125,872. When Dr. John T. Barton first rode to Johnson County in 1857, he was struck by how beautiful the landscape was. The sight of the prairie, covered in wildflowers, gave him the idea to name his settlement “beautiful.” He asked a local Shawnee interpreter how to say “beautiful” in his language, and the interpreter said “Olathe.”

Olathe has a checkered history, with much violence between abolitionists and slave traders. It also has a strong and proud history as a place for travelers to find refreshments. At different points in time, Olathe has functioned as a stop on the Oregon Trail, the Santa Fe Trail, and the California Trail. After the advent of rail, Olathe became less critical, but it has seen a resurgence in the last 100 years and is now a fast-growing city with plenty to see and do.
