Lenexa Kansas History
Although much has changed, the Missouri border has remained the same since the mid-19th century, and the eastern part of Kansas territory has become the 34th state. The southern districts were then ceded from the United States and united by a free state after years of turmoil. In 1861, Congress passed the Kansas-Nebraska Act to create Kansas Territory and open the area to settlers.
After the Civil War Lenexa began to grow, at a time when land speculation and railway construction were also at stake, after the Shawnee had finally counted their land. Today, the only building left of the old Santa Fe Trail settlement is the school, which is now a museum and a listed building. The Shawnees of Lenox began annexing land in Monticello Township in the 1970s, but in 2006, that last piece of land was drunkenly and disorganized.
It is named after the historic home of Thomas Jefferson and is located in Monticello Township, north of the city of Lenexa and east of Interstate 70. It includes Jefferson House, a historic building with museum, and a Grade II listed building on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Shawnee Indians moved to the area between 1826 and 1833, and Lewis and Clark arrived a year later and camped in what is now Kansas City, Kansas. The trip was by train from Kewanee to Quincy, Illinois, then by Missouri River boat came to Kansas City and by boat to Lenexa.
The stool line followed the access road from Twin Mill Farm, which is now covered with access roads to Twin Mill Farm and the Lenexa River.
The route to Westport ran through what is now Fairway, Kansas, and the early course of the road led to the county and the state. Santa Fe merchants abandoned their preferred new route from Westports, which crossed the state line about a mile north of here, in favor of a more direct route to Merriam, Missouri. The early part of what we now know as Turkey Creek Streamway Trail is located at the intersection of Interstate 35 and Interstate 70, south of Merriam. It is the first contact between the Lenexa River and what is now known as the "Turkey Creek" and "Streamway" Trail.
The Leglers moved to Johnson County in 1863 and settled in what is now the 95th and Quivera, and they moved again in 1864. Fur traps master Joseph Legler and his son-in-law, returning from their trip to Mexico, met the Santa Fe Trail here and followed it all the way to Westport.
Gum Springs (later Shawnee) was designated the first county seat in Johnson County, and in the fall the first district court was held here. The site is located at the intersection of 95 and Quivera, south of today's Lenexa on the west side of Interstate 70.
