1915Independence Avenue was given its name because it extended from the central business district of Kansas City to Independence. In 1893, the Board of Park Commissioners selected a portion of Independence Avenue to become the first boulevard in the Kansas Parks and Boulevards System. Independence Avenue at that time featured some of the finest residences in the city, including those of civic leaders August Meyer and Robert Gilham.
