Moses Greeno, the subject of this week's "1874 Revisited" project, has a rather short biography, but reading it made me curious about the history of the Shawnee Mission schools. A quick Google search provided the following info about school district number 92, and what apparently (as seen below) was the first school in what became today's Shawnee Mission School District: http://roesland.smsd.org/…/History%20of%20Roesland%20School…
