Prairie Village, incorporated in 1949 by the J.C. Nichols Company, calls itself "The Star of Kansas." Nichols designed the Country Club Plaza, dubbed by some as America's first suburban shopping center, in Kansas City, Missouri, in the 1920s. Prairie Village has many of the outstanding design features of the original Plaza – wide streets and numerous pocket parks with landscaping and statuary at the intersections. It is the only Johnson County suburb with no state or federal highways and no railroad tracks traversing its nearly seven square mile territory. Shawnee Mission East, recognized for academic excellence among public high schools, is one of Prairie Village's anchors.
