It is located in the Santa Fe Commons park in the area that was the first airfield west of the Mississippi. The attractive, but small building houses a collection of historic photographs and documents, as well as a few small displays of local artifacts. In the early 1900s, Overland Park had an airfield, aviation school, a grand stand, large hanger and other facilities where at least one airplane was built and weekend crowds would come to watch barn storming performances.

119th St. & Lowell Ave, Overland Park, KS 66213

Since 1950

Veterans Memorial, Army, Memorial Wall, Privately-Subscribed Memorial Paving Stones, Heroic Bronze Statue, Architecture Buildings, Historical Building, Observation Deck, Group Visits, Fountain, Landmarks, Monuments & Statues

The backdrop of the memorial stands 30 granite panels engraved with the Korean War statistics, events, plaques for each of the five military service branches, a Puprle Heart panel and dedication panel

I have driven by this memorial numerous times over the years buy never stopped to see it until today. The Korean War ended before I was born, and it seems to be a “forgotten” war of the 20th Century. The City of Overland Park did a nice job building this and it is worth seeing to remind us of all the people who have given their lives for our country.
