Stagecoach Stop and Farm Historic Site - Olathe, Kansas

Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop & Farm Historic Site in Olathe, Kansas is the only Santa Fe Trail stagecoach stop that is open to the public. There are three 19th century buildings as well as several 20th century and reconstructed buildings. 

The 160 acre Mahaffie farm was purchased in 1858, and a small wooden frame house was pulled to the location from nearby downtown Olathe. J. B. and Lucinda Mahaffie operated a stagecoach stop for the Barlow and Sanderson Stage Line from 1863 to 1869, providing livery service and meals. The Mahaffies stayed at the farm until 1886, and the property was sold 6 times before the City of Olathe purchased the remaining 20 acres of the original farmstead in 1979. Since that time, the park has expanded through other purchases and may someday house a separate visitor's center & museum. 

Tours are available from 10 - 4 on Wednesday - Saturday and  12 - 4 Sunday: $3.25 adults, $2.00 children 5 - 12. 

Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop offers frequent special weekends. The largest event is the Wild West Show & Bullwhacker Days in September. Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop & Farm Historic Site also hosts a free Christmas open house on the first Saturday in December.

Animal Feeding Time is 3PM on Thursdays from June through August. $1 per person, ages 3 and up.
