Flatland receives a lot of questions about Kansas City’s history. 

Below we’ve curated four questions from readers, ranging from burial markers for a Kansas police officer in the 1870s to traveling cowboy stars stopping by Children’s Mercy Hospital in the 1950s. Sure, this is a mixed bag of queries but they were all too fascinating to ignore. 

Remember, voting rounds begin every first Monday of the month and end the last day of each month. Help spread the word by sharing this with your friends and family members.
