Kansas City history:

The town of West Port was begun in 1833 by John McCoy. A year later, he began Westport Landing as a point on the river for the town. Not much later, a group of investers, the Kansas Town Company, came to the area. The Westport Landing area was incorporated in 1850 as the town of Kansas. In 1833 John McCoy established West Port along the Santa Fe Trail then in 1834, McCoy established Westport Landing to serve as a landing point for West Port. Soon after, the Kansas Town Company, a group of investors, began to settle the area. In 1850 the landing area was incorporated as the Town of Kansas. There were a number of Civil War battles fought in the area and once the war was over, the city grew. The Hannibal Bridge opened in 1869 and then the town's population increased dramatically. The heavy growth brought a name change to Kansas City in 1889. The boundaries for the city were also increased at this time.

The city has been called the City of Fountains because it has more fountains than any city in the entire world, excepting Rome, Italy.
