Thursday nights are family nights where my children were taught how to play games from the 1800's while my husband and I could relax. We got to hear stories about what life was like last century. We all loved the stage coach rides!! All ages can participate, The best part is this is a "free" activity!!

This is a great place for families for a short afternoon trip; you can do the whole thing in a couple hours. You can tour the house, barn and other out buildings. The staff are wonderful and will provide you with all sorts of information about the history of the Mahaffie's. They cook using recipes that would have been used... More

The Character Actors were terrific. Extremely cordial and knowledgeable. TIP: Early afternoon seemed like fewer visitors and the staff had more time to tell about the site.

Had a great time with my friends touring the farm, barn and house. The Mahaffie 'family' were very informative. Take the stagecoach ride if you get a chance.

We have lived in Olathe for 23 years and have been here several times! My boys loved going when they were smaller. They loved seeing the animals and seeing how the stage coach stop was ran - they did the tour with their school. We've gone back for a Spanish celebration and a reenactment. Always something cool an exciting going... More
