Did you know?

Rev. Thomas Johnson received the original grant for the land and the Shawnee Indian Methodist Mission was built; the mission then closed and the property sold to J.C. Nichols Company in 1938, who built a home development here which had a driving range on the other side of the highway. Nichols decided to call the area Fairway because of its proximity to the Mission Hills, Old Mission and KC Golf Clubs.1
