Gardner, KS Contractors

Located in Johnson County, Kansas, the city of Gardner, which is part of the Kansas City Metropolitan Area, has existed as a town since before the Territory of Kansas became a state.

History

Founded in 1857, the city of Gardner, which consisted of 320 acres of land when it was staked off in August of that year, is believed to be named after then-governor of Massachusetts, Henry J. Gardner. The Massachusetts connection to Gardner's founding is based on the activities of the Massachusetts Emigrant Aid Company, which aimed to foster Free-State status for the Territory of Kansas, thereby breaking down the major barriers to emigration. As the society's 1854 report stated, "The Massachusetts Emigrant Aid Company promises to give confidence to settlers, by giving system to emigration. By dispelling the fears that Kansas will be a Slave State, the Company will remove the only bar which now hinders its occupation by free settlers." The society also promoted immigration to the territory by extolling its virtues while offering assistance to those who considered settling there.

Geography

Situated at the junction of two famous trails — the Santa Fe Trail and the Oregon Trail — Gardner has been referred to as "the grand-daddy of all highway junctions." The town's location has also been credited with spurring both its early growth and its more recent economic development. Residing in the vicinity of Kansas City and sitting at the heart of bustling Johnson County have contributed a great deal to the city's vibrant business landscape and blossoming prosperity.
