Welcome to the City of Overbrook, Kansas! Our city is defined less by boundaries on a map than by the sense of shared values our residents hold dear. We take pride in maintaining a wholesome lifestyle, rich in cultural history, along with a deep commitment to the preservation of our environment and a progressive approach to local business.
Overbrook is built on the old Santa Fe Trail (now US56); located SE of Topeka Approximately 20 miles, or SW of Lawrence- 25 miles. We are a similar distance to Ottawa. As you drive down Highway 56 you will be greeted by our 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, beauty salon, a large grocery store, quilting shop, restaurant and cafe, an excellent Library, swimming pool, a 24-hour Nursing Home 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 ready for the beginner and experienced angles. 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, Overbrook has numerous small businesses, a great school system, and a number of churches, which together creates a self-sustaining city with a hometown atmosphere for vistiors, as well as those already living in Overbrook. We enjoy meeting new friends, so stop by if your driving down Highway 56! While you are here you will see for yourself why so many of our young people have returned to their hometown to raise their families and...
