About the Prairie Village Service Area We are Proud to Work In 

Prairie Village, Kansas is a suburban residential town located in Johnson County, Kansas. It is part of the Kansas City Metropolitan Area. The city was platted in 1941 and was named after the Prairie School, which was established almost a century before. Prairie Village was recognized as the best planned community in America in 1949. It is incorporated under the laws of the State of Kansas.

The history of Prairie Village dates back to the time when the land was inhabited by Shawnee, Osage, and Kansa Indians. Thomas Porter purchased 160 acres of farmland in 1858, which eventually became part of Prairie Village. Henry Coppock also arrived in Johnson County in 1857 and built his family home on 900 acres in Prairie Village. The original Prairie School was built in 1882, and a new building was constructed in 1912. The city is now home to Homestead County Club, which is located on the land that previously housed the Prairie School.

The Early Years of Prairie Village

In the 1940s, developer J.C. Nichols purchased farmland from the Porters, Coppocks, and Lewises with the intention of converting it into suburban housing for white soldiers returning from World War II. This led to the development of Prairie Village as a suburban community. The Prairie Village Shopping Center opened in 1947, followed by the Corinth Square Shopping Center in 1955.
