Although once known for its trading posts, grain, cattle, and westbound trails, Kansas City is now a glorious harmony of tradition and culture ... of "small town" comforts and "big city" opportunities.

Its rich history celebrates the cool notes of jazz and the red-hot spiciness of true Kansas City barbecue. Current-day Kansas City embraces shimmering fountains, artistic influences, classical entertainment, enriching museums, exquisite dining, professional athletics, educational facilities, and an outstanding standard of living. And tomorrow's Kansas City visions include continued respect for its heritage and welcoming even more growth and inspirational dreams.

Suburban communities sprouting from this metropolitan core proudly display their Kansas City connections. They also proudly display those features which makes theirs a unique locale.

The Northland is one such community. While recognizing its Kansas City roots, The Northland also recognizes its individual qualities... its new and impressive retail/business developments; its highly-rated schools, its warm and welcoming atmosphere, and its outstanding residential developments such as Riss Lake.
