Olathe KS: One of the Fastest-Growing Cities in the U.S.

Nestled snugly in the plains of northeastern Kansas, the vibrant city of Olathe, seat of Johnson County, enjoys the distinction of being one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States. The fourth-largest city in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area, fifth-largest city in the state of Kansas and second-largest of 21 Johnson County communities, Olathe is a suburb of Kansas City that borders Overland Park, Lenexa and Gardner. In 2008, Olathe was ranked number 11 by CNN Money on the magazine's list of Best Places to Live.

History

Incorporated in 1857 — and again in 1858 due to the unstable political atmosphere that prevailed at the time — Olathe (pronounced O-lay'-tha) was set up at the geographic center of Johnson County and named using the Shawnee Indian word for "beautiful." In 1859, the city was designated the official county seat. Olathe's history is a rich one, dating from the early Kansas, Pawnee and Osage Indian tribes to the city's 150th birthday celebration in 2007 — and beyond.

Population/Demographics

The estimated 2012 population of Olathe, based on projections made from actual 2010 Census figures, is 130,045 residents. The city boasts a well-educated populace, with 95.6 percent of the 25-and-over population holding a high school diploma or higher and 45 percent of that population holding at least a bachelor's degree.

Geography

Situated just 20 miles southwest of downtown Kansas City, MO, Olathe is close enough to Kansas City MO to allow its visitors convenient access to the many enjoyments the big-city cultural mecca has to offer. Its location near the eastern edge of the Great Plains makes Olathe a popular area for cyclists and offers many opportunities for cycling enthusiasts of all skill and fitness levels.

Climate

Along with the rest of the central section of the Great Plains' eastern edge, Olathe features a humid continental climate. This climate brings large seasonal temperature differences and yields relatively high humidity. Average July highs and average January lows are fairly consistent with U.S. averages, bringing a difference of only about 1-3 degrees. Average summer highs hover around 90 degrees F, and average winter lows are fairly consistent at about 20 degrees F. Spring and summer typically bring thunderstorms to the area. However, at 38.8 inches per year, average annual rainfall levels are only a few inches above the national average of 36.5 inches.

Area Attractions

The city features 43 parks and 57 miles of public trails, providing visitors and residents with many opportunities for combining fitness, fun and fresh air. Other area offerings include a variety of community activities and events, shopping, dining and hotel accommodations to help make your stay in Olathe a memorable one.

The city is home to the Olathe campus of Kansas State University, known locally as K-State Olathe, and also features MidAmerica Nazarene University, the Kansas School for the Deaf, and the Deaf Cultural Center and William J. Marra Museum of Deaf History and Deaf Culture.
