Bonnie Brae History
The land where Bonnie Brae was built was originally from the Kansas Pacific Railway Company. George W. Olinger, a businessman, visited the subdivision and was greatly inspired by its Scottish nature. By 1920, he started purchasing the land where the modern Bonnie Brae lies and started to develop it.
In 1923, he hired the famous architect Saco DeBoer to design of the street system of this new neighborhood. The first house in the neighborhood was built in the same year.
In 1925, land fillings were completed.
In 1928, Olinger’s company declared bankruptcy. The development of the neighborhood slowed down drastically.
In 1934, one of the first commercial establishment – the Bonnie Brae Tavern – opened. Soon after, other commercial properties were constructed. This commercial area is located between Exposition and Ohio Street and is still considered as the “Main Street” of Bonnie Brae today.
In 1936, Ellipse Park was constructed. It is the centerpiece of DeBoer’s design. Eventually, new homes were built around the park – most of them were established after World War II.
