Kansas City is located in Jackson, Clay, Platte, and Cass counties, and is the largest city in Missouri. It is located in the western part of the state, at the junction of the Kansas and Missouri rivers. French trader François Chouteau came from St. Louis to establish a trading post in 1821 on the site of the present city. He took advantage of the growing fur trade with the Kansa, Osage, Wyandotte, and other tribes. The community became the Town of Kansas.The city was renamed Kansas City in 1889. The city's name reflects its Native American heritage—its site was within the territory of the Kansa, or Kaw, Indians. The coming of the Missouri-Pacific Railroad in 1865 and the spanning of the Missouri River by the Hannibal Bridge in 1869 contributed to the city's growth. It also prospered as a center for the nation's cattle business.The city grew rapidly in the mid-1880s as the starting point for gold prospectors and settlers heading westward.
