Welcome to Marlborough

A vibrant neighborhood in southeast Kansas City.

For the last ten years, the Marlborough Community Coalition, a 501(c)(3), has worked hard to bring positive change to the neighborhood. The current focus on linking partners and stimulating new grassroots leadership will continue to strengthen the momentum of the area for years to come. From arts to urban gardening, the community hosts a number of exciting opportunities to get active and involved. Explore this site, and find ways to get engaged! At the end of the day, it takes all of us…residents, businesses, educators, and civic leaders to work together to achieve a common vision.

History passed through Marlborough's Dodson District this afternoon at 85th & Prospect...the Union Pacific "Big Boy" 4014 is the only operating coal fired steam engine from the fleet of 25 that hit the rails in 1941. A diverse group of curious people were not disappointed! It was a beautiful site and we are so glad that rail service is cleaner and more engery efficient than in 1941. Train photos by Rodger Kube.

If this “Big Boy” rolls through Martin City between 4 & 4:15pm Sunday that means it should be crossing 85th & Prospect about 4:30 or shortly after - how fun for Marlborough. Meet up in the Trolley Track trail parking area to see hIstory pass by!
