77th and Troost

My Troost

Chainy J. Folsom

For my post I selected several geographic images of the 77th and Troost area.

Edward’s Map for Jackson County Missouri, 1887.

It is possible to make out the owners’ names within the lots.  Note several names prominent in the Kansas City development history; Waldo, Wornall, Boone, and Hickman. Find the Thos. Mockbee 60 acre lot at the lower center.

The area as represented in the 1925 Atlas of Kansas City.  Thos. Mockbee’s lot is in the lower left map.  The lot has been subdivided into 40 acre and 20 acre lots.
