As part of our Uncovering History Project, the Midtown KC Post is taking a look at the 1940 tax assessment photos of each block in Midtown. Today, we look at residences, businesses, and apartment buildings in the North Hyde Park neighborhood, from Linwood Boulevard south to 33rd Street, and Gillham Road east to Holmes Street.
But we would like your help. Do you remember this block in 1940 or in the years since? What special memories do you have of this section of North Hyde Park? What questions do you have about it? We’ll share your history and help to preserve it on our website.
Would you like us to focus on your block next week? Send us an email.
