Prairie Village

Communal • Family-Friendly • Tree-Lined • Active • Vibrant • Centrally Located

Prairie Village is a centrally located suburb on the Kansas side of the state line. It has a strong and stable housing market, with many different home styles – both smaller starter homes and larger family homes, with mid-to-upper-range pricing options. There are many parks and tree-lined streets. There are two main shopping districts, the Prairie Village shops and the Corinth Square shops, both of which have a small town feel with quality stores and restaurants. The majority of homes were built after WWII, and include the Cape Cod, ranch, mid-century modern, and split-level.


Prairie Village History

After the successful development of the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, Missouri, J. C. Nichols turned toward development of his native Johnson County, just a few miles from the Plaza. He wanted to turn the farmland into suburban housing for soldiers returning home from the war. Prairie Village was platted in 1941 and was named after Prairie School, which was established for almost a century before. It was officially recognized as a city in 1951. (wikipedia)
