Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop & Farm Historic Site

1200 E Kansas City Rd, Olathe, KS 66061

The Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop and Farm Historic Site, locally known as the Mahaffie farmstead, was originally a stop along the Oregon and California Trails. The house's heyday came with large numbers of westbound travelers of the 1860s. The house has been converted into a museum and gift shop situated on almost 40 acres of land. It frequently hosts American Civil War reenactments, with a focus on events connected to Bleeding Kansas and bushwhackers. There is also an in-house blacksmith and other various era-specific artisans.
