City of Overbrook, KS
Overbrook City Hall 785-665-7328


Overbrook is built on the old Santa Fe Trail (now US56);  located  SE of Topeka approximately 20

miles, or SW of Lawrence-   25 miles. As you drive down Highway 56 you will be greeted today,

as in years past, with the old water tower boasting our slogan  “Don’t Overlook Overbrook.” We

are a small farming community, rich in heritage, and wealthy in the spirit of community life. Our

town is privileged to have two banks, a dental office,  barber shop, a beauty salon, a large

grocery store,  quilting shop, flower shop, restaurants & café, an excellent library, swimming

pool, a 24-hour Nursing Home along with assisted living apartments, and a community

retirement center.  Our 8 acre fishing lake sits on the east side of town just off Highway 56. It

has been well stocked and is now ready for the beginner and experienced angler. Jones Park

is just south of the lake and is a great place to watch area baseball and softball teams. The

beautiful  9-hole golf course west of town is host to many area golfers and visitors. As you can

see, we have numerous small businesses, a great school system, and a number of churches,

which together creates a self-sustaining city with a hometown atmosphere for visitors, as well

as for those already living in Overbrook. We enjoy meeting new friends, so stop by if you're

driving down Highway 56, and see for yourself why so many of our young people have

returned to their hometown  to raise their families and....       Don't Overlook Overbrook!    

WELCOME to Overbrook, Kansas ...
