The Fireplaces & Chimneys of Lenexa, Kansas
BY ROBERT BERRY, OWNER OF FULL SERVICE CHIMNEY
Lenexa, KS Chimney
Local Families Enjoy their Fireplaces
Both the old town of Lenexa and the developments of the 60-80s show a commitment to homes with hearths but have two distinct designs. Early Lenexa homes built in proximity to the depot more often than not had a utility design. These chimneys were frequently servicing free-standing, or central, coal stoves and boilers. Some of the larger homes of this time had a fireplace and masonry chimney in the area of the parlor or living room.
Lenexa, KS Recycled Brick Chimney Needs Repair
Old Depot Meet Stylish Metro Community
Both the early and latter chimneys were sturdy and, at the time, state of the art construction. However, both chimneys and fireplace designs have a surprisingly common feature. Their bricks are over one hundred years old. Sure, homes around downtown are a century old, but so are the chimneys built from the 1960s through the 1990s. Why? These homes were built from “used bricks”.

A Quick History of Lenexa, KS
The history of Lenexa is full of fascinating people and stories of innovation, leadership, and respect. The Shawnee Tribe lived on the land allotted to them during the relocation of several native tribes in the 1830s. Quasky Blackhoof was among the significant leaders in the tribe when they worked with settlers in the area during the 1950s to create the Treaty of 1854. The treaty legally divided the land among Natives and the new settlers and allowed Natives to sell their property if they chose. When Quasky died a few years after the treaty, his wife, Ne-nex-se, continued to cultivate and ranch on their plot of land.
The community respected her so much that an adaptation of her name became the official town name when it was platted in 1869. The town was platted by Octave Chanute, a French-born civil engineer who built the first bridge over the Missouri River. The bridge allowed railroads to cross the river and expand their rail lines to other parts of the country. Chanute was well a trusted engineer and well connected all over the world. He utilized his connections to keep up to date on the flight innovations and technology and published a book about it. When the Wright Brothers were interested in guidance on their first airplane design, the Smithsonian Institute recommended Chanute’s book. Wilbur Wright wrote to Octave who became very involved in the development of their first successful flying machine. Chanute also had a large hand in developing Lenexa into a community similar to what William Strang was doing in neighboring Overland Park. Octave, along with a few other prominent leaders in the area, developed the land to attract families using the railroads to live and commute outside of the city.
