A Historic Preservation Ordinance, Chapter 2.84 of the Olathe Municipal Code, has been enacted by the City of Olathe to help protect and encourage the preservation of Olathe's historic and architectural resources. The Ordinance establishes the Olathe Historic Preservation Board (OHPB).

In addition to the City of Olathe's Historic Preservation Ordinance, the State of Kansas has adopted the Kansas Historic Preservation Act K.S.A. 75-2715 - 75-2725 which provides for the protection of properties listed on the Register of Historic Kansas Places and the National Register of Historic Places.
