Prairie Village is located just south of Mission Hills and west of State Line Rd. Originally PV was bounded by 67th and 71st streets; over the years it has expanded to encompass 6.2 square miles. After J.C. Nishols finished the Plaza and had a good start on the affluent residences in Mission Hills, he began developing Praire Village. This neighborhood, he envisioned, would allow people of modest means to afford a home.
Prairie Village Shopping Center, across from Indian Hills Country Club, was within walking distance of the earliest homes and people today still walk, bike and skateboard to the center. There are 2 other shopping centers within "The Village" as well as eleven (11) parks. The convenience of being so close to the Plaza, easy access to downtown, and preponderance of ranch homes makes Prairie Village a popular place to live.
