History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

In 1883, Willard E. Winner came to the area with plans to build a city north of Kansas City across the Missouri River, and connect the two by a bridge. He built a rock road that became Swift Avenue and he started constructing a bridge across the Missouri River. He then purchased land and laid subdivisions in town lots. The city was well planned and built with homes, commercial houses, paved and lighted streets, a water works system and parks in advance of its inhabitants. The district was incorporated on November 4, 1912, as the Town of North Kansas City.

While 4,208 people reside in North Kansas City, the industrial/business portion of the city comprises approximately 3/4ths of the land area making the daytime population much larger.
