This bronze plaque on a concrete and stone plinth is located in Olathe Civic Park. The plaque is approximately 3 and 1/2 feet off the ground. The pictures of both Herbert S Hadley and of Mahaffie Farmstead - both are in low relief. I believe that the marker was set by the City of Olathe.

Herbert Spencer Hadley (February 20, 1872 – December 1, 1927) was an American lawyer and a Republican Party politician from St. Louis, Missouri. Born in Olathe, Kansas, he was Missouri Attorney General from 1905 to 1909 and in 1908 was elected the 32nd Governor of Missouri, serving one term from 1909 to 1913. As Attorney General, he successfully prosecuted Standard Oil Company for violating Missouri antitrust law.

Hadley was the son of Major John Milton Hadley and Harriet Beach Jones Hadley. He attended the University of Kansas, where he was a member of Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity and received an A.B. in 1892. He earned his law degree from Northwestern University with first honors in 1894. While at Northwestern, he helped establish the Northwestern University Law Review. In 1901, he married Agnes Lee. Their children were John Milton, Henrietta, and Herbert Spencer.
