Spring Hill Demographics and Real Estate Info
Spring Hill Kansas is a suburb of Kansas City located in the south-central part of Johnson County. It is considered part of the greater Kansas City Metropolitan Area. Nearby cities include: Edgerton, Overland Park, Olathe, Prairie Village, Lenexa, Leawood, and Kansas City Missouri.
Spring Hill Kansas has a wonderful and rich history that dates back prior to the civil war. James B. Hovey who envisioned the town as being a critical link between Olathe and Paola founded it in 1856. He set up a hotel and became the town’s first postmaster.
The first woman doctor in the state of Kansas moved to Spring Hill and is rumored to have been deeply involved with the Underground Railroad. During the initial border wars, unlike many of the surrounding communities, Spring Hill somehow avoided the persistent ‘bushwhacker’ raids from neighboring pro-slavery Missouri through convincing deception and diplomacy. Sadly, by 1863, even Spring Hill, as with other towns like Lawrence, had fallen victim to these raids.
As with other surrounding communities, with the arrival of the railroad, Spring Hill enjoyed a business boom.
