About this event

Welcome to the 1860s Kansas Frontier! Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop and Farm was the home of JB and Lucinda Mahaffie and their eight children. The Mahaffies operated a 320 acre farm located right on the busy Santa Fe Trail, a mile east of Olathe. They also served meals to stagecoach passengers and other travelers in the cellar kitchen of their home. Discover what life was like for the Mahaffies when you visit the original 1865 farmhouse, operated today by Olathe Parks and Recreation. From Wednesday to Sunday, Memorial Day to Labor Day, weekends in April, May, September and October and many other days of the year the farm comes to life!
