Quaint • Family-friendly • Tree-lined • Affordable
These two small adjacent Kansas towns have approachable, affordable housing. The homes in these towns are generally smaller, 2-4 bedroom houses that were built from the 1930’s-1950’s. This convenient location is only about a 10 minute drive across the state line into the heart of Kansas City, Missouri. Here you’ll find access to the larger corporate stores that we’ve come to depend on, as well as smaller locally owned businesses. Mission has a quaint old downtown strip with locally owned shops and businesses.
The City of Roeland Park, Kansa was originally named after John Roe, an immigrant from Ireland who settled on 267 acres in 1883, on part of which Roeland Park now stands.
The site where Mission, Kansas now sits was once a rest stop for wagons moving westward on the Santa Fe Trail during the 19th Century. The clear spring water rising to the surface in present-day Mission made it an ideal place to collect drinking water for horses and travelers. After World War II, the town grew rapidly amid the post-war housing boom, as young families from Kansas City purchased their first homes.
