I have always been fascinated by neighborhoods that came out a little... well, Half-baked.
Those pockets of neighborhoods where developers came in and tore down acres of trees and levels hills to build roads and install all matters of infrastructure. There are several in Independence. This one, though is one of the more interesting because the developer (and the city) tore down an enormous hill and ripped up an old airport to put in roads, mailboxes and fire hydrants as they expected several hundred new homes.
They got about a dozen in all. The rest of the lots have remained empty. Check out more here.
