c1950 KANSAS CITY, KANSAS Huron Park Linen Postcard – Wyandot Native American Indian Tribe Cemetery – Flower Gardens and 1904-1962 Public Library Building – Curt Teich (1893-1974), Chicago, IL, Publisher

A c1950 Curt Teich linen postcard with a view of the Public Library in Kansas City Kansas from the floral beds of the Huron Park Indian Cemetery - containing the graves of Wyandot Native American Indian tribe members. Now formally known as the Wyandot National Burying Ground, it is located at North 7th Street and Minnesota Avenue in Kansas City.

On their arrival in Kansas and Missouri in the early 1840s after their removal from Ohio by the US Government, the Delaware tribe sold the Wyandot’s thirty-six sections in what is now Wyandotte County, Kansas. The burial ground that became known as the Huron Cemetery was established c1843 on a ridge overlooking the Missouri River, to bury the Wyandot tribe’s dead from an epidemic.

Over the years as Kansas City expanded to and surrounded the site – including the Public Library building in the view. The cemetery repeatedly was the center of controversy between Kansas City, and factions of the Wyandot tribe who were for preservation, and those considering it prime for redevelopment. It is believed this library building pictured in this view has been replaced.

Postmarked June 22, 1950 from Kansas City, KAN postcard to a Norwich CT address. Message in Polish language.

PHOTO NOTE: Linen finish card. The photos distort the clarity of the images and sometimes the intensity of the colors. The muted "grainy" look is largely a distortion. The clarity is greater when viewed in person. Minute defects are exaggerated by the scanning process, and some are virtually noticeable when viewed in person.

CONDITION: PLEASE EXAMINE THE PHOTOS CAREFULLY. In very good condition, but not perfect. No tears or crease. Corners are slightly crushed, border edges show wear, and white border show age discoloration and light soiling. Back has generalized soiled spots and age discoloration, more noticeable around the edges. Message (in Polish), address and postmark are readable. ALL FLAWS ARE OBVIOUS IN THE PHOTOS.
