Study of the history of the Catholic Church in Kansas City, Missouri from a geographer's perspective can illuminate the city as a whole from a grassroots perspective. This project combines a chronological series of maps showing the boundaries of parishes with parish histories and other archival material to reveal ongoing settlement patterns. Ethnicity is a major topic; secondary foci include how the city grew, the character of particular neighborhoods, and the evolving transportation network.
