Serving as champions of our community while preserving and advancing our vibrant, inclusive culture.


Waldo is a vibrant neighborhood and business district located in the heart of Kansas City. What began in 1841 as the farm of Dr. David Waldo, soon became a bustling neighborhood on the edge of the city – a town unto itself.

Founded in 1965, the Waldo Area Business Association represents the member businesses and organizations that are both contained within the area from Gregory Blvd to 91st Street and from State Line Road to Holmes Road in Kansas City, Missouri, and any individuals such as Real Estate Agents wishing to network and conduct business inside these boundaries. Come Grow with us!
