Strang Carbarn

Downtown Overland Park

Strang Carbarn

Located 2 blocks west of Metcalf, at 79th and Santa Fe, is the Strang Carbarn. This is the heart of Downtown Overland Park. Once the service building for William Strang's Interurban Railroad, the Strangline, the Strang Carbarn now houses Traditions Furniture. A museum wall inside dispays information and memorabilia.

An original Carriage House remains at Santa Fe Commons Park. Now, the site of the Overland Park Historical Society, which aids in researching and preserving Overland Park history.

Downtown Overland Park is situated on the Santa Fe Trail. A marker at 80th and Santa Fe memorializes the trail.

At the beginning of the 20th Century, Overland Park bustled with horse-drawn traffic, the famous Interurban Strangline, gravel streets, a dance hall, restaurant, dry goods store, and blacksmith shop. The Aviation Park and South Lake were other popular draws to attract visitors from Kansas City.

Overland Park was the vision of William B. Strang, entrepreneur and visionary. Strang envisioned a "park-like" community. He brought in businesses, created an aviation park, provided quality education, vibrant neighborhoods, modern transportation and recreation.

During the summer, enjoy the weekend music and many festivals. In additions to Traditions Furniture, discover Prairiebrooke Arts, Penzy's Spice, and many other fine businesses.
