    There is a lot of history at the Grinter Place Home! In the 1800s, the Grinter Place was a trading post for furs, food, and ammunition. The ferry that ran along the famous Delaware crossing was used extensively by travelers over the Fort Leavenworth - Fort Scott military road and by traders, freighters, and soldiers traveling between the forts or to Santa Fe. This place was known as Military or Delaware Crossing. The Grinters farmed and raised poultry and livestock. They also planted an apple orchard on their farmstead. The two-story brick home they built still stands to this day and is the oldest home in Wyandotte County. This little community spot offers festivals several times a year and also hosts parties and weddings for people in the community...A great area to buy a home for your family!

    KC Bowl, previously named Ranch Bowl, has been around since before I was born! I grew up at this bowling alley and remember participating in leagues every Wednesday and Sunday. The arcade was always a great place to hang out and blow some money. The snack bar always had the best pickles and cosmic bowling on Friday and Saturday nights were always a hit!
