City of Grandview

In 1912, Grandview became a railroad division point and terminal for Kansas City Southern. The new transportation source brought an influx of people into the town, and by 1929 Grandview had grown into a city of 700 residents.  Since then, we have grown and expanded to a suburb of Kansas City covering 15 square miles.  With a variety of parks and shopping, Grandview is a great place to call home!
