HISTORIC LANDMARKS and HISTORIC DISTRICTS 

IN KANSAS CITY, KANSAS and WYANDOTTE COUNTY  

This list includes all historic landmarks and historic districts in the city of Kansas City, Kansas that have been officially designated at either the city, state, or national level, as well as the one state and national register historic landmark and one historic district located outside the city but within Wyandotte County.  (At the present time, the cities of Bonner Springs and Edwardsville do not have landmarks ordinances.)  Please note that, effective July 1, 1977, all sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places are automatically listed on the Register of Historic Kansas Places as well.  Other overlaps do of course occur, but they are not automatic.  For example, Huron Place is a locally designated historic district that happens to include five properties that are listed individually on the state and national registers.
