THE GRASS is in fact, GREENER
A CENTURY OF HISTORY
The year was 1919. The long and devastating War in Europe was now over, and economic times for farmers in America looked promising.
Alphonse and Marie Verhaeghe, Belgian immigrants, were seeking to buy a farm and to relocate their growing family from a small rented farm in Kansas City, Kansas. They eventually found an 80-acre parcel in distant southern Johnson County near 175th and Quivira. The beautiful rolling farmland featured a large two-story house, perfect for their big family, and sturdy barns for chickens, livestock, and machinery.
Over the next century the Verhaeghe family gained an excellent reputation for growing a large variety of vegetables, bedding plants, grain crops, and cattle. Alphonse proved to be an astute business man and expanded his land holdings to several hundred acres through both good and difficult economic times.
EXPERIENCE BETTER LIVING
Two generations later, the family heirs are now developing the original farmland into an exclusive new home community called Century Farms. Century Farms will reflect the original agricultural heritage of the Verhaeghe family and their 100-year legacy in this location.
New home construction is planned to start in the spring/summer of 2018, with home occupancy expected in early 2019. There will be a variety of single family floor plans. Homes will start in the upper $600's.
Enjoy a better living experience in Overland Park's new community of homes, Century Farms. Located at 167th and Quivira near Blue Valley Southwest High School, this former farmland is being transformed into one of our most creative home communities. The developer reserved a large area for a grand amenities center with a wide range of outdoor activities. This special neighborhood space will include a community flower garden, a resort style pool, an innovative children's playground, and a large sports field for soccer and other field games. A beautiful clubhouse for friendly gatherings and an outdoor fire pit add to the sociable lifestyle and nature-based feeling at Century Farms.
