Midtown Kansas City's First Urban Garden

Well, maybe not the first but definitely the most memorable and history. Take a look at this local blog documenting The Hoeck Garden and how it influenced this part of town. Checkit:

Gardeners Once Flocked To A Backyard On This Block Near Westport

In 1920, homes of this block from Westport Road to Archibald between Clark Street (Belleview) and Jefferson went on sale, and by 1930 they were filled with families. The block was in a subdivision known as Whitehouse Place, which developers advertised as including 40 homes from bungalows to Queen Anne's to three-story houses.
