An aerial view of land located west of Gage Boulevard, south of the Kansas River, and north of 6th Avenue. The area later became West Hills and Prospect Hills residential subdivisions. In 1931, several people formed the Prospect Hills Golf Association. They hired Mr. Daghlerch, a Kansas City architect, to lay out the course (black lines on the photograph show the location). It continued for six years and on January 27, 1937, a portion of the land was sold to Mrs. Theo Landon. On May 9, 1938, Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Landon purchased the remaining part of Prospect Hills and hired Neiswanger Investment Company to market the subdivision.
