This stamp was issued in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of Kansas City, Missouri. There were two important early settlements founded in the area of today’s Kansas City. The first was established by François Chouteau of the American Fur Company in 1821. This settlement was named Chouteau’s Landing and later renamed the Town of Kansas. The second settlement, Westport, was founded during the 1830s. Westport was a major trading center on the Santa Fe Trail. The stamp contrasts the city’s 1950s skyline with the rustic appearance of Westport in 1850. Westport was annexed by the rapidly growing Kansas City in 1897.
 
Kansas City is the largest city in the state of Missouri, and a Midwestern center of commerce, industry, and transportation. It is home to 482,299 people (2009), making it the 35th – largest city in the United States. This city leads the nation in greeting card production, frozen food storage and distribution, and winter-wheat marketing. Kansas City is also a national leader in wheat flour production as well as auto and truck assembly.
