North Kansas City, Missouri

Just 3 miles North of Downtown Kansas City, Missouri, North Kansas City is an inviting small town with something to offer every type of visitor. From its vibrant historic downtown retail district and its annual Snake Saturday Parade to the night-life at Harrah's North Kansas City Casino, it is the perfect place to live, work, and play!

Originally a northern suburb across the Missouri River from Kansas City, Missouri, it is now almost completely surrounded by Kansas City. 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.
