Midtown Kansas City History Of Help

Great write-up from one of the best documentary bloggers in Kansas City history on how some very charitable people help build this town. Take a look:

On the Edge of Midtown, A Home for Orphan Girls

A home for orphans that took in hundreds of children between 1880 and 1960 was a well-known part of the Midtown landscape. The St. Joseph Orphan Girls' home took up the entire block between Southwest Trafficway (then called Summit) and Pennsylvania north of 31 st Street (Karnes).
