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.
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.
Century Farms ESTATES opened phase I in April 2019. The Estates is known for spacious home sites conveniently located in Overland Park with Blue Valley schools close to walking trails, parks, shopping and easy Highway 69 access. Century Farms will feature a unique set of amenities for a one of a kind neighborhood experience. The developer set aside a large space for a grand amenities center with a wide range of outdoor activities planned for this special neighborhood space. Enjoy the salt water pool, kids playground or evenings outdoor by the fire pit. There will be community raised vegetable planting beds for families with a green thumb.
An exciting new section of Century Farms called The RANCH was also released in December 2019. These 32 home sites have slightly less building requirements and great lot prices. Phase III coming late 2020!
