History on the Trail

The Indian Creek Bike and Hike Trail provides a connection to historical aspects of Overland Park prior to and following the arrival of pioneers "going west."

Interpretive signs along the trail depict archival photographs, maps and other images that tell the history of Overland Park.

The panels feature well-researched original historical narratives about the names of the various streets that cross or intersect with the trail, as well as other points of interest.

The Regnier Family Foundation, the Sunflower Foundation, the Barton P. and Mary D. Cohen Charitable Trust, the Greater Kansas City Health Care Foundation, Freedom's Frontier National Heritage Area, Johnson County Community College Foundation and in-kind services from the Overland Park Historical Society, Lenexa Historical Society and the City of Overland Park all provided funding for this project.
