Rosedale

Missouri Valley Special Collections / Kansas City Public Library

Students from the Armourdale community of Kansas City, Kan., refer to their neighborhood as the barrio.

Today the neighborhood is predominantly Hispanic, but it wasn’t always this way. Armourdale, which was one of the first Hispanic communities to form in Kansas City, Kan., in 1886, went through an era when Hispanics were a minority.

Updated June 27, 2012 12:00pm:  Google has rejected Connecting for Good's wifi plan for Rosedale, according to Michael Liimatta.  He was told the idea is "not in their current licensing agreements."  Liimatta says he's still moving forward with the plan for an e-community center.

Google has promised Kansas City speed-of-light internet. The potential for residents, businesses, schools and hospitals, we've been told, is enormous.
