Lake Quivira Real Estate

Lake Quivira began as the dream of Charles E. Gault, a Topekan who wanted to create “A lake of the finest water in this part of Kansas.” In his enthusiasm, Gault enticed others to join him in this project including W.I. Drummond, who in 1927 organized the Quivira Development Company, and Samuel Insull, a Chicago financier who held and sold stock in the company.

Situated just off I-435 and Holliday Drive in the Shawnee area, Lake Quivira was originally founded in the mid-1930s and is an incorporated city as well as one of the oldest and largest Kansas City area residential communities, featuring close to 400 single-family dwellings.

The community is just minutes away from the new Cerner campus and all the dynamic growth in Wyandotte County, approximately 15 miles from the Plaza, 19 miles from downtown Kansas City, and offers an easy drive to Kansas City International Airport.
