At the Midtown KC Post, we cover daily news and bring you information about the community. But we’re also interested in the past and how Midtown got to be the place it is today. That’s why we’ve started the “Uncovering History” project, which includes a book about the history of Midtown Kansas City neighborhoods which is in the works.
We need your help. We’re looking for stories and photos about Midtown, especially the years between 1880 and 1930 when Midtown was being built. If you have pictures and stories, please email us or call us at 816-516-2446.
We’re interested in the following neighborhoods: Center City, Coleman Highlands, Countryside, Crestwood, Heart of Westport, Hyde Park, Manheim Park, Old Hyde Park, Plaza-Westport, Rockhill, Volker, Roanoke, South Plaza, Southmoreland, Squire Park, Sunset Hill, Troostwood, Valentine, West Plaza, and Westwood Park.
We’d love to share your stories and pictures with our audience and include them in the book.
