About Kansas City

Kansas City is the third-largest city within the Kansas City metropolitan area and the state of Kansas. Also the seat of Wyandotte  County, it was established as a streetcar suburb of Kansas City, Missouri, its namesake. In October of 1872, the "old" Kansa City was incorporated. It was given a city of second class status in June 1880 by the Governor of Kansas, John. St. John. Six years later, through the consolidation of five municipalities – "old" Kansas City, Armourdale, Armstrong, Riverview and Wyandotte – the "new" Kansas City was formed in March 1886. As of the 2020 census, the city has a population of 156,607 people and a total area of 128.38 square miles.

Grinter Place

Grinter Place is a historic home in Kansas City. It was constructed in 1857 by Moses Grinter, who was one of the earlier permanent white settlers in the area. In 1831, he had established the Grinter Ferry as a means of transportation on the Kansas River. The Grinter Place, which is of the Colonial architectural style, was built as the residence for him and his half-Lenape wife. It remained in the family until 1950 when the building was sold and became a chicken dinner restaurant. This lasted until the mid-1960s. In 1971, the property was acquired by the state of Kansas. Today, the house still stands as the Grinter Place State Historic Site. It is administrated by the Kansas Historical Society. On January. 25, 1971, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).
