Shawnee, a suburban market center, was once an Indian village. It became a bustling town on the Kansas frontier during the early days of the Santa Fe Trail. Known as Gum Springs, it was for a time the largest town in Kansas Territory, being the seat of Johnson County from 1855 to 1858 when Olathe supplanted it. [1]
