Overland Park Historical Society

The mission of the Overland Park Historical Society is to collect, preserve, research, exhibit, and educate the public about the history of the region of Overland Park, Kansas and the surrounding area from prehistoric times to the present.

A walking tour of Downtown Overland Park is offered from May through October usually in the morning hours. Stops at some of the businesses are included and the guide will explain some of the city’s history. Please call 913-381-8867 for reservations.

Coronavirus Update

Based on the 30-day shelter-in-place order, we have decided to postpone all of our events and programming for the next four weeks (through 04/23).

We will continue to provide updates via social media and our website, but for now, know that your friends in Downtown Overland Park are hard at work collaborating on best practices with our partners in the community.

Keep in mind, many DOP businesses are keeping their doors open, and they depend on YOU for support. If you are well, consider grabbing your lunch to-go from a local restaurant. Or, shop online at your favorite downtown retailer. The Downtown Overland Park neighborhood is known for its strong sense of community. Let’s flex those kind muscles and lift each other up in this time of need.
