In the 1880s, Kansas City was expanding from its downtown limits southward and developers were starting to consider Country Club as a key extension of the inner city. The construction of a streetcar line along 63rd Street helped spur development in this area between 1892-1893. In 1895, members of the country club district formed the Jockey Club. The next year, the Kansas City Country Club was established in the area that became known as Country Club District. The Kansas City Golf and Country Club opened its doors to membership on July 14, 1897, at a cost of $40 per person.
By 1899, there were 32 homes between 63rd Street and Ward Parkway along Paseo Boulevard. The area continued to grow in popularity, which led to the establishment of the Country Club District Improvement Association in 1913. This association worked to help promote Country Club District as well as improve it by finding ways to control health problems and other issues within the neighborhood.
The Kansas City Country Club moved to a new location at 115th Street and Wornall in 1923. A group of property owners purchased the property and invited residents to join in the building of a park, which was named Hyde Park after one of its founders. The Country Club District Improvement Association petitioned the city council to change the name of 63rd Street north of Ward Parkway to Hyde Park Boulevard. Today it is known as Woodland Avenue.
Notable Places in Country Club District include: Country Club Plaza, Ward Parkway Shopping Center [largest shopping center in Kansas City], The Nelson Atkins Museum of Art is a large art museum adjacent to the park, and H&R Block Headquarters.
