What do cowboy boots, George Washington Carver, and stagecoaches
have in common?

 

Give up?  Each of these played a part in Olathe's amazing history. 

In 2007, Olathe celebrates its 150th birthday!  Here's a fun fact: "sesquicentennial" means 150th, and you may see that word all around Olathe this year. 

Lots of fun sesquicentennial activities will be happening this year, such as:

Mahaffie's Civil War Days on April 22-23, 2007

Americana Jubilee on June 2, 2007

Chautauqua West: Wagons, Wit, and Wisdom on August 3-4, 2007
