This link talks about the Hispanic culture in Kansas City, specifically around Armoudale and the West Bottoms, but these areas are somewhat close to our areas. But it does give a little bit of insight to when hispanics immigrated to Kansas City.

One thought on “History

  1. Nice find! I didn’t know that the Hispanics immigrated to KC at such an early date! It seems that there has been a second wave of immigration in the past couple of decades–I’ve seen a lot of transformation along Central Avenue in the last 15 years. I wonder what has driven that? Is there another contemporary industry that draws Hispanics, in particular?
