Edgerton Real Estate
Located in the southwest corner of Johnson County, Kansas, Edgerton is an idyllic community with a rich and colorful past. The historic Oregon and Sante Fe Trails parted just a few miles east of town. Incorporated in 1883, Edgerton was named for the chief railroad engineer who helped lay down the railroad tracks that passed by the future town site.The Santa Fe Railroad breathed life into an area that was originally bounty lands for soldiers who fought in the Indian Wars and the War of 1812. Edgerton’s birth was the death knell for the nearby towns of Lanesfield and McCamish. The stone schoolhouse at Lanesfield has been reserved as part of a historic site.
