Overland Park, Kansas

The city traces its roots to 1905, with the arrival of its founder, William B. Strang Jr, who plotted subdivisions along a military roadway on 600 acres. He purchased what is now part of the old downtown area.

One of those subdivisions was named Overland Park, and was the site for the first airplane flight west of the Mississippi with shows by the Wright brothers on December 24, 1909.
