Overbrook cooks up plan to build downtown historical museum

OVERBROOK, Kan. – A cookbook featuring more than 350 homegrown recipes from members of the Overbrook community is now available for purchase, with proceeds from the sale going toward the effort to build a historical museum in downtown Overbrook.

The ”Don’t Overcook Overbrook” cookbook features a wide assortment of recipes for appetizers, soups, desserts, main dishes, salads, and more. The book was published by the Overbrook Historical Society, and is dedicated to the memory of three local women who in their lifetimes fed a large proportion of the Overbrook community:

  • Shirley Simmons, owner and head cook at Shirley’s Café for more than 45 years.
  • Enda Fox, who cooked lunches in the Overbrook School District for many years, and was well-known for her cinnamon rolls.
  • Anita (Musick) Maichel, owner of Jack’s Café, Ganders Club and Restaurant, and Jack’s Sandwich Factory.

“Don’t Overcook Overbrook” is available for sale for $20 per book at Overbrook City Hall, 401 Maple St., or the Kansas State Bank, 400 Maple St., Overbrook, Kan. To request copies in advance, email the Overbrook Historical Society at overbrookHistory@gmail.com.
