Is Kansas City named after Kansas?
When the Dalas Texans wanted to move the team to Kansas City the Chief of the city at the time was very supportive of the move and he was apparently a very loved man so in hon…our of him they named the team, the "Chiefs"
Their old name was the Dallas Texans. But when they moved to Kansas City, their name was after the Mayor of Kansas City, who's nickname was "chief". Hope that helps
they had a contest to see what the new team name would be when they moved up from Texas when they held the contest chiefs was the most popular so they chosse it
because of royalty. Kansas City has similar names for most of their pro teams. The Monarchs, (negro league baseball) Chiefs (NFL football) Steers (semi-pro football). Teh sayi…ng used to be everthing is up to date in KC. But, now it is Everything is a light year ahead, (due to Google fiber)
There is one in Kansas and one in Missouri.
From what I have been told, by olden relatives, it came from the fact,that after the civil war, Texas sent huge amounts of cattle north to Chicago's slaughter houses, be…cause of the new meat demand, and due to the fact that Texas was rather unhurt during the war, they had the meat on the hoof at hand. They were taken off of the range, and shipped to Kansas City, where they were relayed to Chicago, but since the range in Texas is somewhat rough, the resulting beef cuts were not as tender as desired, but rather like the old cattle trails from yore, where the cattle were driven to the train yards up north, and the meat was somewhat tough. As a result, cattle yards would keep some of the cattle there, and would fatten them up for as much as a month, on corn and other grains, so as to gently tenderize them, and ergo, these steaks were know as KC steaks, because of this process. That is what I recall. Hope that this helps.
Joe Reardon is the current mayor of Kansas City, KS.
Kansas City straddles the Kansas & Missouri state border (defined by the Missouri river) hence there is Kansas City, KS and Kansas City, MO.
Kansas and Missouri
Not as big as Kansas City, MO. But the population is of KCK is 146866. Kansas City, MO is 475830.
Kansas City is in Kansas and Missouri because Kansas City is a rather large city; it is in Kansas but it crosses over the border and the larger part sits in Missouri, so it is… considered a city in both Kansas and Missouri.
I noticed someone answered Douglas County. Douglas County Kansas is where Lawrence Kansas is. Kansas City Kansas is in Wyandotte County Kansas.
four men were playing poker it was decided that whoever won the game would have the honor of naming the town after him. A man named Cawker won the game; thus the name "Cawker …City" was born
Cawker City got its name when 4 men where playing poker and they decided whoever won, the town was to be named after him and the rest is history.
It makes no sense, but there is both! Kansas City, KS and Kansas City, MO. There is also a place called Kansas, OK (but not Kansas city, just Kansas). Just like Portland. Ther…e is a Portland in Oregon and Maine. Trust me, sometimes cities double, maybe even triple!
