Olathe, Johnson, KS

The story of the naming of Olathe goes back to 1857 and the founder John T. Barton. He purportedly thought the area was so beautiful with its blooming wildflowers and rolling prairie land that he asked his Shawnee interpreter how to say "beautiful" in his native language. His response was "Olathe."
