Grandview MO Fun Facts
Garndview’s history is deeply rooted dating back to the 1800s. Local legend has it that the community’s earliest leaders looked upon the rolling hills of the area and said, “Isn’t it a grand view?” Hence, the name for this quaint community located minutes south of Kansas City along Interstate 49.
Grandview is where 33rd President Harry Truman grew up working on the family farm. Grandview is also known for having the highest-ranked school districts in Missouri, home to nationally recognized parks and distinguished police and fire departments.
