Thursday night fun at Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop

Cousins Carys, 4, from Colorado, and Rylin, 2, Olathe, are proud of the craft they made at the Historic Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop and Farm in Olathe, KS.

It was the first of several Thursday night events at the Historic Mafaffie Stagecoach Stop and Farm in Olathe last week, and grandchildren Dylan and Carys, 5 and 4, from near Fort Collins, Colo., and Rylin, 2, from Olathe, were there to enjoy the festivities.

It was 1860s Horsepower Day, which included a stagecoach ride, demonstrations of horses pulling sleds three times their weight, craft making and tours of the Mahaffie House.

Dylan also was able to showoff his blacksmithing talent helping the Mahaffie blacksmith make a hook to “hang his lantern” on at his home in Colorado. And, as it turns out, Dylan’s and Carys’ great grandfather “Oz” Oswald from Wales was a blacksmith, taking care of the horses and mules that pulled ore from the mine.

Dylan, 5, from Colorado, shows off the hangar he made at the blacksmith shop during the 1860s Horsepower Day at the Historic Mahaffie Stagecoach Stop and Farm in Olathe, KS.
