Historic Moment

Very, very rare photograph of the last time Indian Mound in Northeast Kansas City erupted. According to native lore it was shortly before 1700.  This picture was taken by a trapper who was just passing through.   The photograph, which is a glass plate negative, can be found in the collection of the Smithsonian Institute.

I've driven by the Frontenac Apartments for years.  Finally got to photograph the inside.  Two apartments; one with white woodwork, one with the natural woodwork.  421-423 South Gladstone Boulevard. 



















Skylight and hallways completely renovated.   For rental information: 816-483-8999.
