Jose Cantu- Cherry to Holmes

My portionĀ of Armour Blvd between Cherry and Holmes developed very early on. Originally there were 3 large mansionĀ homes that stood out very clearly from the surrounding small homes. In 1914 one of the mansions was mentioned in a Kansas City Star article called, “Beautiful Homes of Kansas City”. In the early 1920’s the entire area was leveled to make room for what is now called the Kenwood apartments, but the Kenwood apartments we see today were rebuilt to hold more people in 1966.
