Pomeroy, Kansas City, KS

Pomeroy is a neighborhood in Kansas City, KS, and is the oldest platted community in the state.

When the post office was established in 1858, the small settlement was renamed, Pomeroy. Its name comes from a railroad official. The city has traditionally been seen as a blue-collar neighborhood with many Italian and Eastern European immigrants. Since 2000, however, there have been revitalization efforts to create more upscale housing options for those living in Kansas City, KS.

The neighborhood has two historic districts, three buildings individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and one Kansas State Historical Site. The three historic districts are the Pomeroy Historic District and the Northeast Ninth Street Historic District, both of which overlay the original platted community; and the third district along Armour Boulevard.

Historically, Pomeroy contained a rich variety of entertainment options. Aside from the Pomeroy House (the oldest hotel in Kansas, constructed in 1859), there was also The Egyptian Hall (built in 1873) which hosted performances by Charlie Chaplin, Robert Ford, Harry Houdini, and Sarah Bernhardt. It closed its doors to the public in 1914.
