Mission & Roeland Park

article slide
Originally called Mission Hill Acres in 1926, this suburb was sub-divided into 245 lots and offered by the Breyfogel family for sale. By 1935 there were five businesses; a drug store, restaurant, hardware and dry goods store, a barber shop, and a cleaning and pressing establishment. Postal authorities recommended in 1938 that the name of Mission Hill Acres be shortened to Mission. People come to Mission and Roeland Park from all directions, to work and shop, see their doctors, dentists, lawyers and other professionals, and enjoy "big city services" in a friendly, small-town atmosphere. You'd expect to travel a hundred miles into rural Kansas to find a place like Mission, but it's only minutes away from all the excitement of Kansas City, Missouri and Kansas City, Kansas, and enjoys the safe and friendly residential atmosphere of Johnson County, Kansas.
