In the Middle of Everything


The ultimate address in the Kansas City metro

Enjoy country living minutes from where the action happens

Basehor is Kansas City’s signature “smalltown” suburb. Whether you work in business, are a retiree, soldier or an entrepreneur trying to find a friendly place to start your business, Basehor has room for you. Basehor is an exceptional example of a thriving, progressive and idyllic community. Conveniently located in southern Leavenworth County, just outside of Kansas City, Basehor successfully maintains the balance of intimate country life and urban convenience. Positioned just a stone’s throw from downtown amenities, yet far removed from four lane gridlock, Basehor’s slogan really says it all, “A little country near Kansas City.”

One of Basehor’s many benefits is its close proximity and easy access to a plethora of area attractions. Positioned between Kansas City and Lawrence, you’re sure to find something that interests you within easy reach. Whether it’s shopping, dining, museums, the theater, gambling, cultural or sporting events, you are only minutes away from experiencing all that the Kansas City Metro has to offer. Ease of transportation continues to contribute to Basehor’s growth and attraction.

Basehor’s landscape is a stimulating combination of built and natural environment. There are a variety of living spaces available including single family homes, home-sites, townhouses and senior living facilities located throughout the community. Basehor emphasizes code enforcement and community policing in order to maintain property values and preserve the existing tranquility of the country environment. A safe community with a low crime rate Basehor is a delightful mix of mature neighborhoods along with new, contemporary subdivisions.

Basehor is consistently one of the fastest growing cities in the Kansas City metro and is poised to continue that trend. City leaders have installed the infrastructure and planning measures necessary to sustain robust growth and maintain the allure, character and charm that has made Basehor such an attractive place to live. Leavenworth County's low cost of living is another reason Basehor has become the living room headquarters for so many - families and small businesses. You can find what you need by staying close to home. Our community-centered library offers high speed internet access, meeting rooms, books, movies, and outstanding programs for all ages.


Basehor was founded in 1889 by Reuben Basehor and his brother Ephraim. They both were of Pennsylvania Dutch descent and came to Kansas in 1854. After living in Lawrence for a time, Ephraim began working as a hired hand for an area farmer. He eventually bought the farm and other land holdings in the area. In 1889, the railroad was completed and Ephraim plotted his land and began building the town site. It was dedicated on November 30, 1889, and was named after Basehor. Ephraim Basehor donated the land for the school house around 1900. The old grade school was located north of town and was originally called the Prairie Garden District #32. The first high school classes in the community met in 1905 above the Kemler-Hammond General Store.

In 1906, a building was erected to house the high school and grade school. It was built for K-12 on the southeast corner of 155th Street and Leavenworth Road. The high school was upstairs, and K-8 was located in the three classrooms downstairs. In 1929, there were five graduates. A new two-story brick high school was built as a W.P.A. project in 1938. The grade school classes continued to be held in the old building until a new grade school was built in 1955. By 1963, a new high school was built, and the older building was taken over by the top two grades of the grade school. In 1969 The City was incorporated. Community Spirit is what has always defined Basehor. Downtowns don't make a community; people do, and Basehor residents embody a community spirit that makes us truly unique from our neighbors. Unlike so many modern suburbs, Basehor is more than an address; it's a home. It's why we see so many grown children returning to raise their families. They know that Basehor is the ideal place to live and raise a family. It’s an exciting time for Basehor as we usher in a new era of growth and progress. We invite you to join us on this venture.


Basehor-Linwood High School was named a 2012 National Blue Ribbon School and continues to perform exceptionally well in the area of academics.

Quality education is a foundation of pride and focus for the Basehor-Linwood School District. With modern facilities that include four elementary schools, a middle school and a class 4A high school, USD 458 is a progressive and respected public school district serving the communities of Basehor and Linwood with an enrollment that continues to grow about 1.5% each year.

BLHS underwent a dramatic facelift in 2001, updating classrooms, an auditorium for theater performances, an acoustic-friendly music and band room, computer, science and math labs, a second-to-none gymnasium and a world-class health and wellness center that provides both teaching and fitness space.
