Olathe has around 118,000 residents, and is located in the metropolitan area of Kansas City, Kansas. Olathe is the home of the Kansas State School for the Deaf, which was established back in 1866, and the MidAmerica Nazarene University. The temperatures average around 20 below in the winter and an average of around 90 degrees in the summer, with an annual precipitation amount of 40 inches. The city served as a stop along the Oregon Trail, California Trail, and Santa Fe Trail, so there is some rich history, great for the whole family to learn. The Mahaffie House was a treasured stopping place for those traveling west, and has since been indicted into the Historical Society. The staff wears outfits that were worn during that era, and there are stagecoach rides and farm animals, which are a great hit with the kids.1 Visitors can also be involved in a Civil War re-enactment during the Wild West Days.
